Afternoon Lecture Series: Stabilization at Locust Grove

This event has already finished but is here for your information

Preservation architect Christopher Quirk will present an overview of the assessment process and design considerations that led to the selected treatment of Locust Grove. The presentation will also include progress photos from the installation of the wall anchors and removal of flooring at the attic level. Last summer’s masonry reinforcement project was the culmination of seven years of assessment and design exploration by architects and engineers who specialize in historic preservation. The task of stabilizing walls was made particularly challenging as the extensive interior reinterpretation had been completed, and ceiling and wall finishes could not be compromised. 

The Locust Grove Afternoon Lecture Series is held the first Wednesday of each month. Dessert and coffee are served at 1:00 pm with the lecture immediately following at 1:15 pm. Admission is $6, $4 for Locust Grove members. Reservations are not required.
