2011 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN REHABILITATION

Hallock Cottage
Augusta, Richmond County

The History
Constructed in 1897, Hallock Cottage was built by Elijah Allen Hallock who came to Augusta from Long Island, New York. Located in the Monte Sano section of Summerville, the cottage was owned by a succession of local Augustans, including August F. Hilleke, manager of Augusta’s gas works, and Hollis C. Boardman, manager of the Standard Oil Company in  Augusta. Hallock Hall is good example of a middle class, Queen Anne style home.

The Project
After being listed on Historic Augusta’s Endangered Properties list, rehabilitation of the cottage began in 2010 with the goal of returning the home to a single family residence. Using state and federal certified rehabilitation tax credits, work was done to rehabilitate the historic windows, hardwood floors, mantels and several built-in shelving units. Additionally, exterior elements were gently cleaned, repaired, and repainted.
