Houses That Talk! Hebert's Cleaners

In the 1970's Carol Harrison Jahncke delighted area residents with a series of articles featuring Covington houses that talk, giving their history in an imaginary conversation. It covered many buildings in the downtown Covington area. 

The article below deals with the building which housed Hebert's Cleaners, mid-block on Gibson between Columbia and New Hampshire.

This is what the building looked like 20 or so years ago. 
Unfortunately, the 1997 tornado collapsed the first story of the Hebert's Cleaners building.
