City leaders denied access to Obrecht House






TELL CITY – Tell City officials hoped to tour the interior of the beleaguered Obrecht House Wednesday morning. But they were denied entry by the woman who has long been a source of controversy surrounding the once grand home.

Carolyn Barr, who has been working on the home for years, stood in the front yard of the house and spoke to department heads on how she plans to restore the home. She plans to replace the home’s top-story windows and will stabilize a porch.
