Fresh off a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 49th Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards on June 18th, This Old House returns for its 44th season. The show will kick off with a new project in South Atlanta located in one of the last neighborhoods to go through urban renewal. The 1890s Victorian once belonged to Luther Judson Price, the first black postmaster general in Atlanta and a prominent figure in his community for his work with civil rights. The house has a rich history, and the homeowners want to preserve as much of that history and tell its story. Then it’s off to Ipswich, MA for a First Period house that had been owned by a Revolutionary war officer. The team will also head to Newburyport, MA and meet up with some old friends to help with a home that was originally built to house the local shipbuilders.
