Group restoring old Sheet & Tube company homes asks for help


The leader of a group that works to restore the Sheet & Tube company homes says it’s time for Campbell leaders to take more interest in the homes.

Tim Sokoloff, president of the Iron Soup Historical Preservation Co., told city council Wednesday that his group of six volunteers managed to make a difference in the neighborhood with a small budget.

The group owns 19 of the 179 homes that are left in the complex, which consists of one- and two-unit apartments in concrete row houses that were the first of their kind. Sheet & Tube steel mill built them in 1918 for their workers in the Campbell plant. They are on the National Register of Historic Places, but many of them are in disrepair.

The group is now asking for the city's help to further its efforts.
