The National Endowment for the Humanities will give as much as $125,000 to help restore the oldest building at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

Center for Louisiana Studies Director Joshua Caffery says the center must raise another $375,000 over the next four years to get the full amount. The center began restoring the Roy House last year. It was built in 1901 and is the only university building on the National Register of Historic Places. The university's news release doesn't give the total needed for renovations.

At present, the center has offices in the university library.
