330 Wilson

Porch at 330 Wilson during the Locke EraMargaret Place residents and friends of Theresa and James Barnatt know that they enjoy the tranquility of their porch as much as those who came before them!

A Landmark Home by the Calcasieu Historical Preservation Society, the porch of this historic home known as "The Leon Locke House" will serve as a prominent feature of Saturday afternoon's walking tour and preview event. 

Visitors will have a rare opportunity to take in the history and ambiance of the home built and occupied by former Lake Charles Mayor Leon Locke and his family. 

The Barnatt's have quite a story of what they consider a work-in-progress. Fortunately, they are willing to share their approach to renovating this historic property.
