NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - The Natchez Preservation Commission has approved an application by Habitat for Humanity to build a house on Martin Luther King Jr. Street.
The Natchez Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/NgUXGf ) Habitat for Humanity secretary Duncan McFarlane told the commission the house will be the 17th the organization has built in Natchez.
The house is the first approved by the commission, although McFarlane said there are eight Habitat houses in the historic preservation district.
He said the organization built those houses without knowing it needed approval of the preservation commission.
