2012 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN REHABILITATION

OLD COMMERCIAL BANK OF METCALFE
Metcalfe, Thomas County

This small, South Georgia bank building was constructed in 1916 in the town of Metcalfe. With much of the work being done by the building's owners, the non-original enclosed loggia was removed and a historically appropriate storefront reconstructed. The interior of the building was restored and updated to accommodate current use and was promptly rented to a local seamstress and upholsterer. The rehabilitation will hopefully encourage other preservation projects in this tiny historic commercial district which was listed on The Georgia Trust's 2009 Places in Peril list.
