Lynchburg Courthouse Museum Rehabilitation

Project Details

In Association with Virginia A/E:

The project included a complete restoration of this 1855 historic courthouse, one of the oldest and most cherished structures in Lynchburg. While every surface of the museum was addressed in one fashion or another, the scope of work also entailed significant and structural repairs; state-of-the-art mechanical and electrical systems replacement; above grade and sub-grade masonry restoration; below grade foundation drainage; architectural millwork replication; and a historically correct reassembly and erection of the crowning bell tower cupola.
