the gradual return of the various elements that make up the handsome Italianate style faรงade of the Lamar House. An error in the design when it was reconstructed in 2004 caused rain to fall directly on the edge of the porch floor, leading to rot, and infiltration below. After a heavy rain, water sometimes collected under the porch and entered the basement level through the door. Historic Augusta engaged Cheatham, Fletcher, Scott Architects to draw up plans that would correct these design flaws.

it allowed water to periodically flood the ground floor level of the house. The retaining wall is now completely recessed under the porch floor, and the cement floor was lowered slightly to ensure that in the event of pooling, water does not seep into the building. A new sump pump was installed, with discharge aimed away from the house. An electronic light detector was installed allowing the fixtures to automatically come on at dusk, and go off at dawn. Various other work was done by Peach Contractors while they were on the job, including some weather stripping, fence bracing, a new step and other seemingly minor, but important repairs. EM

Did you know? Although born in Ruckersville, Elbert County, at his maternal grandparents’ home, Joseph Rucker Lamar lived in the house now occupied by Historic Augusta between 1860-1875 from the age of three to 18 years. There were periods during the Civil War when the Lamars retreated to Cedar Grove, the Rucker plantation in Elbert County, but the family home remained in Augusta. Joseph’s mother, Mary Margaret Rucker Lamar, died in the Lamar House on January 24, 1864 during the Civil War, leaving three small children behind. Her husband, the Reverend James Sanford Lamar, remarried on December 14, 1865 to Sarah Mayson Ford, who lived next door. Known as Sallie, her father was the Dean of the Medical College of Georgia. Although Sallie had no children of her own, she was a beloved mother to her three stepchildren. The Lamar House was constructed in 1859-1860 by William H. Salisbury, a local stove dealer in Augusta. He sold it when new to Emily Thomas Tubman, a wealthy nineteenth century philanthropist and a devoted member of First Christian Church. Mrs. Tubman provided the home to her pastor, the Reverend James Sanford Lamar, at no charge during her ownership. She deeded the property to the church in 1870, which sold it in 1875 to Ferdinand Bowdre Phinizy, a local cotton factor. EM

PRESERVATION BRIEFS FA L L 2017

TRINITY CHRISTIAN METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH received a stay of execution from the Augusta Historic Preservation Commission at its meeting on July 27th when a request for demolition by Atlanta Gas Light Company was denied. Trinity is considered the “Mother” church of the C.M.E. denomination, having been established in 1840 by African American members of present-day Saint John United Methodist Church. Located at the northeast corner of 8th and Taylor Streets the ground underneath was contaminated by a gas manufacturing plant that was established across the street in 1852. After failed attempts to remediate environmental problems in other ways, AGL remains under orders from the Georgia Environmental Protection Division to remove the soil under the building. The Augusta Canal Authority has lead efforts with Historic Augusta over the past several months to find a solution. Money has been identified to move the structure to a nearby lot adjacent to the canal’s third level. Proposed uses include a community center, arts venue and trail head. Next steps are still under discussion. EM X

THE HOME OF THE REVEREND CHARLES T. WALKER at 1011 Laney-Walker Boulevard was purchased by Historic Augusta’s revolving fund in November after untangling the complicated estate that owned it. The Reverend Walker was the founder of Tabernacle Baptist Church and was an outstanding figure in Augusta’s history. Laney-Walker Boulevard and the Laney-Walker Historic District are both named in honor of Miss Lucy Craft Laney and the Reverend Walker. A committee has been formed under the leadership of John Williams, which has begun the process of stabilizing the house for rehabilitation. Grant funding from the Johanna Favrot Fund of the National Trust for Historic Preservation has been awarded to be used for architectural planning. The committee is working with the Laney-Walker Development Corporation towards finding a permanent owner to rehab the property according to preservation standards. EM X

CERTIFIED REHAB of downtown buildings has surged since the beginning of the year. Historic Augusta’s staff has received numerous telephone calls from developers, investors, and private homeowners interested in purchasing and rehabilitating historic resources in downtown Augusta and our historic districts, such as Summerville and Olde Town. The heightened interest in the downtown area is primarily a response to the announcement of Augusta University’s new cyber facility and the companies that have relocated to the Augusta area for this growing field, including UNISYS and Cape Augusta. To date, Historic Augusta is working directly with nearly 20 property owners to submit certified rehabilitation tax credit applications both at the state and federal levels for owner occupied residences and income producing properties. Certified rehabilitation tax credits are one of the most significant financial incentives for historic preservation and can be highly beneficial for the property owner depending on the scale of the project. More information regarding the programs can be found on Historic Augusta’s website underneath the Preservation menu tab. The following is a brief list of a few certified tax credit projects currently in progress:

Historic Augusta News


448 GREENE STREET: this large Second Empire style house on lower Greene Street in the Pinched Gut Historic District will be rehabilitated into 9 residential apartment units utilizing the existing floorplan. The property retains many original character defining features such as hardwood floors, pocket doors, and original windows. Listing in Historic Augusta’s Endangered Properties List for 2015 had a direct influence on saving this property, which is being undertaken by Mark Donahue of Peach Contractors.

X

941 ELLIS STREET: This large two story warehouse building in the Downtown Historic District will be rehabilitated into 12 residential apartment units. With no existing interior walls due to the historic use of the building, the configuration of the apartment units will incorporate both wooden structural beams and unfinished masonry walls.

X

945 BROAD STREET: Purpose built in 1823 as the Young Christian Men’s Association building. TaxSlayer recently purchased this property in the Downtown Historic District to expand operations and staff. The five story commercial building will undergo some modifications but will retain much of the current floorplan and historic features including the gymnasium and lap pool which will be covered by a level floor. This is the second round for certified rehabilitation for this building, which was the centerpiece of the rehab of the entire block by Bankers First in the 1980s. X

1114 HICKMAN ROAD: This Craftsman style bungalow in the Summerville Historic District will be rehabilitated into a single family home from its current configuration as two residential units. Years of neglect and deferred maintenance have left the property with significant damage but character defining features including coffered ceilings, original double hung sash windows, hardwood floors, and fireplace mantles, are to be retained and repaired. X

901 BROAD STREET: A project dating back to 2012, work is well underway to create two commercial spaces on the first level of this large corner building in the Augusta Downtown Historic District and a dozen income producing residential apartment units on the upper levels. Originally slathered in a thick layer of stucco that was removed by the previous owner, historic photographs have been located to give the current owner an indication of the facades from several time periods, one of which will be selected and the exterior features recreated and reinstalled.

PR ESE RVATION AWAR DS Historic Augusta recognizes outstanding historic preservation projects each year throughout Augusta and Richmond County, and we are pleased to announce the recipients of the seven awards given at our 2016 Annual Meeting, which was held last November at the Augusta Country Club. The 2016 recipients of Historic Preservation Awards were the following:

THE PARTRIDGE INN AUGUSTA, 2110 Walton Way. An iconic landmark building in the Summerville Historic District, the most recent rehabilitation has brought this historic hotel up to the Hilton Curio standards while retaining original millwork, plaster, and stamped tin ceilings throughout the interior. Construction management by Janus Associates, interior design by Sims Patrick Studios, and architectural design by Dickinson Architects. Award presented to Jane Spano, Regional Director of Operations and Tijuana Jenkins, Director of Sales and Marketing. WINDSOR MANOR, 3594 Windsor Springs Road. Built in 1921 for Arthur T. Cole, a prominent Chicago resident, and designed by architect Willis Irvin. Listed on Historic Augusta’s Endangered Properties List in 2012, the property was purchased in 2014 by Ian Shiverick who has performed nearly all of the rehabilitation himself and was recently featured in This Old House magazine for his mesmerizing hand-painted floor detail. Award presented to Ian Shiverick. 1438 ANTHONY ROAD, built c. 1910, this large Queen Anne style home located in the Summerville Historic District was purchased in 2011 by Abby Wood. Rehabilitation work included removal of layers of wallpaper and linoleum and refinishing the original hardwood floors and moldings and installing a contemporary kitchen. After completion of the rehab in 2016, it was sold to a new owner. Award presented to Abby Wood. 2840 WALTON WAY, built in 1926 and designed by Willis Irvin, this stately Tudor style home was built for Alonzo Boardman, Sr., and was purchased by the current owners in 2015. The adjacent cottage was renovated first followed by the main house. Serious structural issues with original beams in the kitchen were resolved and the meticulous restoration of original flooring, plaster, metal frame windows, and fireplaces were completed over the last year. Plaster work completed by Cliatt Contractors and Mahoney Stucco and electrical work completed by Ferrell Electric. Award presented to Christie and James Ferrell.

VINEYARD COMMUNITY CHURCH, 3713 Wrightsboro Road. Built in 1934 in the Colonial Revival style, the Old Sue Reynolds School was listed to Historic Augusta’s Endangered Properties List in 2008 with two other surplus school buildings. Vineyard Community Church purchased the school building in 2015, emptied the building of abandoned furniture and cleaned the spray paint graffiti from the halls and classrooms. The church held its first service in August of 2016 and is very proud to know this historic resource has been saved for those in Augusta-Richmond County. Award presented to Jeffrey Miller of Vineyard Community Church. THE BURUM HOUSE, 2306 Walton Way. Built in 1900 for Henry Percy Burum as his private residence, this prominent home at the corner of Johns Road and Walton Way sat vacant after the last occupant moved out in 2000. The new owners purchased the home in 2014 and began the lengthy process of stabilizing the home after years of deferred maintenance. The house has been renovated inside and out for a growing family. Original character defining features include moldings, mantles, and built-in shelving. Project contractor was Keith Howard and interior layout and design by Yancey Sherrouse. Award presented to Anna and Wilson Allgood.

Historic Augusta also presented one award for new construction. This category was developed in 2013 to encourage the owners of newly-constructed buildings to contribute to the character of the historic neighborhood in which it is built by respecting the location, design, materials, and other character-defining features of historic buildings that surround it.

419 SECOND STREET, this vacant lot at the northwest corner of Telfair Street and 2nd Street was purchased in 2015 by the Eckleys. As new construction within the Olde Town Local Historic District, the proposed design and materials were reviewed by the Augusta-Richmond County Historic Preservation Commission and approved prior to breaking ground. The Eckleys moved into their new home in mid-2016. RAM Construction served as general contractor and Ray Good Custom Home Designs provided the design. The award for 2016 was presented to Sarah and John Eckley.

In November, Historic Augusta will announce its 11th Annual Endangered Properties List and our annual Preservation Awards. We are seeking nominations for both of these programs from our membership and the public. You can submit your nominations by using the forms provided under the Preservation menu on our website, HistoricAugusta.org, or by calling the office at 706.724.0436.

WILSON HOUSE UPDATES

We had a fun summer at the Boyhood Home of President Woodrow Wilson meeting new guests from the CSRA and around the world! Historic Augusta staff stayed busy by giving tours of the home, as well as running booths at the Greenjackets games and the "Georgia On My Mind" fair. We are extremely grateful for funding from the Creel-Harison Foundation and to Busby’s Heating and Air for replacing one of the home’s HVAC units this summer.

DOCENT SPOTLIGHT: STEPHANIE HERZBERG Stephanie Herzberg is so passionate about sharing history with the public, it’s easy to think that she’s been giving history tours her whole life. In actuality, Stephanie began her career in early childhood education and later worked in the gift shop at the Augusta Museum of History. Today you can find her at the Boyhood Home of President Woodrow Wilson, as well as the Saturday trolley tours of Downtown Augusta. Stephanie joined the staff at Historic Augusta in 2005, after applying for docent training. “My heart beats for old houses,” she remembers, “so I was really intrigued by the home. I didn’t know much about the house, except that it was once a beauty salon.* During the training, I was surprised to learn how much Woodrow Wilson’s childhood in Augusta impacted his life and future presidency. To grow up right next door to a civil war hospital – to see that kind of horror as a child – it’s no wonder he was later so determined to spread democracy through the world! I realized this isn’t your typical historic home; it is truly the home of a president, and that’s when I fell in love with the place.” Eleven years later, Stephanie is now our lead docent at the Wilson museum, and her years of experience, a keen interest in research, and vibrant personality make her a true asset to Augusta’s historic community. Pick Stephanie’s brain on all things Woodrow Wilson and experience Augusta in a new light by joining her on a tour of the home any Thursday – Saturday from 10:00am-4:00pm. Tickets are $5 adults, $4 for seniors, $3 for students K-12 and free for children under age 5. Reservations are kindly requested but not required.

*In 1991 Historic Augusta, using funds granted by the City of Augusta, purchased the Wilson home at public auction. Historic Augusta then began the process of returning the house to the way the Wilsons would have known it in the 1860s. In 2001, after ten years of planning and restoration, the Boyhood Home of President Woodrow Wilson opened for tours. In this photo, Executive Director Erick Montgomery can be seen taking down the old beauty salon sign with the assistance of Historic Augusta’s then president, Nancy Bowers in May 1991.

P R E S E RVAT ION MON T H R E V I E W Historic Augusta celebrated National Historic Preservation Month in May with two of our favorite annual events: the Downtown Loft Tour, which was held on the fifth and sixth, and the Cotton Ball, which was held on the twenty-third. The organization sends our heartfelt thanks to everyone who made these events enjoyable and successful both in terms of raising awareness of preservation in our community and raising funds to support our mission. We would especially like to thank Ben Casella and Steve Sanders for co-chairing the Downtown Loft Tour, as well as Ashley HockSmith and Max Vallotton for co-chairing the Cotton Ball; thank you for making this year’s Preservation Month special! Our deepest gratitude is also owed to all who opened their homes to our guests: many thanks to Augusta University’s President Brooks A. Keel and First Lady Tammie Schalue for once again offering their home for the Cotton Ball, to Sacred Heart Cultural Center for hosting the Cotton Ball during inclement weather, and to the occupants and owners of the coolest lofts in Downtown Augusta! Lastly, congratulations to our Cotton Ball raffle prize winners: Mr. Rodger Giles won an iconic silver cuff Tiffany & Co. bracelet, and Dr. William Kitchens won a 5 day, 4 night stay at an oceanfront condo in Flagler Beach, Florida!
