Longview landmark under restoration

LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)- A piece of east Texas history, connected to the old train track days, begins the process of a much needed facelift today. 'Preservation Longview' began work today in restoring the historic judge Campbell house on Center street in Longview.

Assisted by Letourneau university grounds crew, the home will be restored to its original 1872 Victorian look. The Campbell's were instrumental in bringing train tracks to east Texas, and its restoration is valued as a tourist attraction.

The restoration is expected to go on for several months.
