Officials with Gracepoint Homes, a custom homebuilding company, cut the ribbon Feb. 16 at their new sales and design center.

The center is located inside one of Montgomery's oldest historic homes. The home, according to the Visit Montgomery website, was built in the 1850s and is known as Pecan Shadows.

According to city officials, the white house was originally scheduled to be demolished in 2022.

However, according to a Facebook post by Gracepoint Homes, CEO Thomas Cox decided to renovate the historical home instead and transform it into a central location for his business while simultaneously preserving the history of the house, which is also expected to be used as an event venue and community hub in the future.

Renovations on the house were completed Jan. 26.​​​​​​
