Loren Jahn & Neil Cobb—The U.P. House

Loren Jahn

Artist/Preservationist Loren Jahn and Historian Neal Cobb tell the story of Loren's move of the U.P. House property at 821 N. Center Street in the UNR Gateway to its new location on Taylor Street near Nixon, during the COVID pandemic. This was the only property saved on the west side of N. Center between 8th and 9th Streets, once UNR decided to remove or demolish everything in the Gateway. The property once belonged to poet JoAnn deLongchamps who donated it to the University. It was most recently known as the International House and has been featured on the HRPS University Walking Tour for many years.
