CROWLEY, La. — Crowley Main Street announced Friday that the Egan Hotel in Downtown Crowley has been awarded a $55,000 National Park Service grant by the Louisiana Office of Cultural Development for its restoration project.

According to Crowley Main Street, the Egan Hotel was built in 1912 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 as a contributing resource to the Crowley Historic District. The period of significance to the Downtown Crowley Commercial Historic District was from 1887 to post-1931.

Crowley Main Street says the grant will provide for the restoration of 66 double-hung windows of the second and third story. The building is located at 306 North Parkerson Ave., in Crowley.

The Egan Hotel was one of six projects in Louisiana awarded grant funding through the Historic Revitalization Subgrant Program (HRSP) administered through Louisiana Main Street. To be eligible for grant funds a building must be a currently vacant or underutilized historic building within a Louisiana Main Street district.

Crowley has been a Louisiana Main Street community since 1999.

The building is owned by Lazar John Properties.
