Trinidad Express / OUTRAGED by the Express reports that revealed the ruined state of the abandoned Blanchisseuse home of the country’s former governor general, Sir Solomon Hochoy, and his wife, Lady Thelma, citizens appealed to the new owners, the Roman Catholic Church, to save the property. The Express has since been informed the property will not be torn down, with the Church’s Legal and Property Department disclosing the Hochoy house will be preserved, given its historical value. The Express had found the property, located along North Coast Road, was left vacant following Lady Thelma’s passing in 2010, and occupied by a squatter who had to be forcibly removed by police. By then, the furnishings had been largely ruined, with the personal possessions of the Hochoys strewn about the living room and bedrooms.
