TOTAL LISTED

By Erick Montgomery, Executive Director In 2006 Historic Augusta named its first list of “endangered properties.” Like a new car, this list is announced each fall, and is dated for the coming year in order to keep it current. We didn’t invent the concept. Other historic preservation organizations around the country, both statewide and local, have similar lists. The National Trust for Historic Preservation established its “Eleven Most Endangered” list in 1988, and the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation began its “Places in Peril” list the same year that Historic Augusta’s list began. Overall such lists have proven to have a positive impact on bringing about the preservation of significant, but threatened historic properties.

Historic Augusta’s 2019 Endangered Properties List is our thirteenth in as many years, adding four more significant places to the rolls. What does the future hold for these, as well as others that have not made it to the “Saved” category on previous lists? Time will tell, but please join Historic Augusta in expressing support for saving these irreplaceable treasures that are part of our city’s rich heritage. Perhaps some of the readers of this annual Endangered Properties edition of Historic Augusta News for 2019 will be inspired to invest in one of these places. If you are inclined to do so, call Historic Augusta’s office, and we can advise! EM

The lesson learned is that if a respected organization speaks up, an endangered historic property may have a chance to survive. If no one speaks up, chances aren’t very good. As you can see from the scoreboard, Historic Augusta’s previous 73 listings have resulted in 19 “saves,” and 13 that have made “progress” toward preservation. 15 have had little or no change, but they have not been demolished yet. Therefore 65% of these important historic places survive and are either thriving, or have a promising future. Less cause for optimism on the list are 9 deteriorating properties and 3 that are actively threatened, comprising 16% of the list. Sadly 14 places have been lost after being named, representing 19% of the properties that have been spotlighted over the years. In reviewing the entire list, of the 32 properties that have been saved or which are making progress, 22 are protected under the City of Augusta’s Historic Preservation Ordinance. Seven of the 32 are part of a National Register historic district, providing incentives to encourage rehabilitation even though they are not protected by the preservation ordinance. Only three of those saved or progressing are properties that have no designation of any kind at this time. Of the 14 properties that have been lost, only 2 had local designation, and one of those simply collapsed. This suggests that the strongest tool to ensure a historic property’s survival is to be within the boundaries of a locally designated historic district. This means that alterations and demolitions must be considered by Augusta’s Historic Preservation Commission before building or demolition permits can be issued. When paired with National Register designation, chances for rehab of these properties increase exponentially. 2 | Fall 2018

The Zachariah Daniel House at 448 Greene Street, was named in the 2015 list and has undergone a certified rehabilitation completed this year

2 0 1 9 E N DA N GE R E D PROPERT Y McNatt–Green–Burdell House, Bath Community near Blythe South Richmond County

PROPE RT I E S L I ST

OWNER Privately Owned

PROPERT Y 220 Greene Street

THE THRE AT This large house located in the Olde Town neighborhood has suffered from deferred maintenance over the years. While it retains its historical integrity, those features can quickly deteriorate and the overall condition of the house may decline.

THE THRE AT This historic resource is secluded in South Augusta on private property. While the family members maintain the property, the overall plan for preservation, rehabilitation, and interpretation has not been developed leaving the property vulnerable and threatened. SOME HISTORY Nestled in South Richmond County at Bath, also known as Richmond Bath, the McNatt house is an excellent example of surviving antebellum architecture in the Central Savannah River Area. The community of Bath is so named because of springs located around the original town site. Prominent Burke County Plantors and Augustans frequented the springs and subsequently many buildings were constructed, including the McNatt House, built by Adam McNatt a wealthy planter from Burke County. A quote from A Lost Arcadia, The Story of My Old Community, described the allure of Richmond Bath and the homes there as an escape to “balmy, resineous, and germless air”. The McNatt home is just one of many features including formal gardens, architectural follies, Bath Presbyterian Church, and lodge all found in the area.

PROPERT Y Squeaky’s Tip Top 2570 Central Avenue

OWNER Privately Owned

SOME HISTORY Constructed at the turn of the twentieth century, 220 Greene Street is an excellent example of the Colonial Revival style within the neighborhood. The neighborhood was ravaged by the fire of 1916, and examples of earlier architectural styles are scarce, particularly ones this large in this corner of the district. City directory research indicates that the property has been steadily occupied since its construction. Note the outstanding character defining features including the large screened wraparound porch, large double hung wooden windows, and hipped roof with overhanging eaves and decorative brackets.

McNatt House at Bath Community

PRE SERVATION SOLUTIONS Not currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places, but efforts are ongoing. Listing would enable owners to utilize state and federal certified rehabilitation tax credits for rehabilitation of the house. A preservation easement to protect the property in perpetuity. Documentation and historic research is ongoing with a small group of volunteers working to implement a marketing campaign and strategic planning for the buildings and gardens at the site.

220 Greene Street

OWNER Privately Owned

POS SIBLE FUTURE USE S 220 Greene Street should remain a single family residence in the Pinched Gut Register Historic District. In the event the property would be income producing residential, any alterations to the floorplan should be undertaken with great care to preserve original volume of the space and character defining features and original materials. Historic Augusta seeks to work with property owners to educate them regarding best preservation practices and appropriate methods for completing work on their historic properties. We are able to point property owners in the direction of contractors or other service professionals that may be able to work towards a preservation solution, utilizing historic preservation tax incentives.

PROPERT Y Prontaut House 407 Telfair Street

OWNER Privately Owned

THE THRE AT The building is vacant and suffers from deferred maintenance. Location along a significant gateway corridor may leave it vulnerable to development pressures along Central Avenue.

THE THRE AT This large house located in the Olde Town neighborhood near the Gordon Highway Overpass has suffered from neglect and deferred maintenance over the years. While it retains its historical integrity, those features are quickly deteriorating and the overall condition of the property continues to decline.

SOME HISTORY Arguably a very recognizable neighborhood landmark in the Summerville Historic District, the Tip Top Grill first appears in the City Directories in 1938 and first shows on the Sanborn Fire Insurance map in 1951 with the street number of 2596 Central Avenue. The exterior materials and features are in keeping with other modest historic resources in the neighborhood built in the first half of the twentieth century. The Summerville District is known for large, high style residences which are a large percentage of the nearly 1,500 historic resources that were surveyed and documented between 2012 and 2015. The commercial buildings clustered along Central Avenue and Monte Sano are all significant for their architectural and developmental contributions to the district.

SOME HISTORY Constructed c. 1890, by John H. Prontaut, this two story brick masonry house is an example of the homes that predated the Great Augusta Fire of 1916. Mrs. Amelia Henry is listed as the resident there in 1898 and further research shows the house was steadily occupied as a single family home. The 400 block of Telfair today is primarily professional offices utilizing the existing historic resources, but there is renewed interest in the neighborhood for owner occupied homes and income producing housing for the influx of young professionals who are arriving in Augusta, driven by the expansion of the cybersecurity industry.

Squeaky’s Tip Top

PRE SERVATION SOLUTIONS As a contributing structure in the Summerville Historic District, certified rehabilitation tax credits at the state and federal levels could be applied for in addition to the property tax abatement program. Included in the Summerville Local Historic District means that all proposed exterior alterations, additions, or demolition must be reviewed by the Historic Preservation Commission to protect the property’s character and integrity.

PRE SERVATION SOLUTIONS As a contributing resource to the Pinch Gut National Register Historic District, certified rehabilitation tax credits are a financial incentive to rehabilitate the property using the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards either as an income producing property or an owner occupied residence. Historic Augusta seeks to engage with all owners of historic properties to best advise the stewardship of the resource.

2018

SAVED: The Miller Theater, 708 Broad Street

2018 marked the official reopening of the Miller Theater as the home of the Augusta Symphony. After years of tremendous local efforts to see the historic theater saved and months of intensive interior and exterior renovations, many of the residents of the CSRA have enjoyed a symphony concert or popular headline touring artist on its stage. The Miller Theater rehabilitation has also been recognized with three awards presented for the outstanding design including a 2018 Best of the South: Preserving Southern Architecture Award of Excellence bestowed by the Southeast Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians. The Miller also received an Excellence in Rehabilitation Award from the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation and the 2018 Marguerite Williams Award also given by the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation. The Marguerite Williams Award is presented annually to the project that has had the greatest impact on preservation in the state of Georgia.

Authors James Garvey and Lee Ann Caldwell will sign copies of Augusta at the Church of the Good Shepherd, 2230 Walton Way, on Sunday, November 18 from 1:00-3:00 pm. Books will be available to purchase for $50 (plus $4 sales tax) and will make wonderful gifts for the holidays. Augusta is a 50th anniversary project of Historic Augusta, Inc. Richly illustrated with archival images and current views professionally photographed by James Authors James W. Garvey and Lee Ann Caldwell Photography by James R. Lockhart R. Lockhart, this beautiful book provides an overview of Augusta’s history through its architecture from the eighteenth to the late twentieth centuries. SH

AT THE BOYHOOD HOME OF PRESIDENT WOODROW WILSON

Reynolds Street Depot, 511 Reynolds Street

Celebrate the holiday season with a tour of the Boyhood Home of President Woodrow Wilson, a National Historic Landmark and the oldest presidential home in Georgia! Enjoy the house decorated for the holidays with fresh evergreens and festive decorations. December tours of the Boyhood Home of President Woodrow Wilson will incorporate details about what Christmas was like in 1918, following the end of World War One.

Plans were recently announced by The Downtown Development Authority for a 98 million dollar mixed used development that will incorporate and rehabilitate the Reynolds Street Depot. Historic Augusta has been working with the developer to prepare applications for the state and federal certified rehabilitation tax incentive programs. We look forward to seeing plans develop and adding the depot to our list of saved properties!

Trinity CME Church, 731 Taylor Street

After months of negotiations and planning, Trinity CME Church was moved by Hercules Movers to its new location across Taylor Street in June. Many preservation enthusiasts, congregation members, and curious residents from all over Richmond County came and watched the massive historic church inch along the tracks over the course of two days. The new foundation is being constructed and soon the next phase of both short and long term planning not only for preservation but for rehabilitation and reuse will kick into high gear. Keep looking for updates from both the Augusta Canal Authority and Historic Augusta.

CORNERSTONE

Guided tours are offered Thursdays-Saturdays on the hour from 10:00 – 4:00 pm. Admission to the Wilson House is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, and $3 for students K-12. Children 5 and under are free.

Rev. C. T. Walker House, 1011 Laney-Walker Blvd.

Historic Augusta received two grants in 2018 to facilitate the first phase of stabilization and rehabilitation for the Rev. C. T. Walker House. Funds from the Knox Foundation and the Watson Brown Foundation Junior Board made it possible for the roof to be repaired and replaced and to shore up the front porch of the house that was quickly deteriorating from significant wood rot. Historic Augusta engaged Capitalrise LLC to complete the initial work. Historic preservation students from the University of Georgia under the guidance of Dr. Mark Reinberger have also been using the C. T. Walker House for a class charrette that will provide Historic Augusta with additional architectural documentation and research. The property is currently available for sale and we are seeking a preservation minded buyer who shares our vision of the historic resource being a demonstration project to show the neighborhood how historic preservation impacts development efforts. 6 | Fall 2018

THANK YOU TO OUR 2018 PARTNERS IN PRESERVATION

Special Candlelight Tours will take place on Friday, November 30 and Saturday, December 1 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm, with tours offered every 30 minutes.
