Fate smiles on 'The Mona Lisa House'

DOWAGIAC, Mich. -- An historic home in Dowagiac is getting a second chance!

Fire destroyed the oldest brick house in the city earlier this year.

It's known as 'The Mona Lisa House' because of a painting on the door.

The owner, Gary Weaver, had problems collecting insurance money.

Back in November, we told you about the city's plans to demolish the house.

Well, the city had a change of heart.

On Monday, Weaver told ABC 57 News that he finally has the money to fix it.
