Point Breeze North to become home to Westinghouse archive
The home designed by Emil and Ella Keller in 1905 is on the path to become a local historic landmark.
Once the house is through the historic landmark process, the owner, Dr. David Fisher, plans to donate the house to The Westinghouse Legacy, a nonprofit being formed to take over the house, which plans to bring the building up to code and create an archive to Emil Keller's former ss,bo George Westinghouse Jr. The house was ahead of its time with electric lighting and intercoms throughout. The plan is to renovate the house and bring to a state where it is just as far ahead of its time as it was when it was first built.
