Jonita Mullins, the treasurer for Founder’s Place, a nonprofit organization, shows significant damage to the Alice Robertson house at 1109 Elgin St. that she said was caused primarily by termites during just the last four years. The University of Tulsa is offering a $50,000 matching grant to begin repairing the house and Mullins is writing a grant application for the same amount to submit to the City of Muskogee Foundation. Robertson, an educator, founded what would become TU. Mullins said the house was last occupied about five years ago.
