VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –The Valdosta Heritage Foundation may rebuild the oldest house in the city that was heavily damaged by fire.

Fire ripped through the J.T. Roberts House last week.

The Foundation plans to have an engineer assess the structural condition. If the house is structurally sound enough to rebuild they'll still have to decide how to pay for it.

The foundation plans to create a web site with updates on the house and to solicit donations. The foundation meets again next Tuesday night at the City Hall Annex.
