2012 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN RESTORATION

EFFINGHAM COUNTY COURTHOUSE
Springfield, Effingham County

The "grand neoclassical palace of justice" that is the 1909 Effingham County Courthouse was designed by Savannah architect Hyman Witcover. The courthouse had undergone two major renovations in its history which altered many of its original details. The restoration process sought not only to recover those architectural details and historic appearance, but to use the most sustainable means available with LEED energy standards as guidelines. The courthouse project was funded by SPLOST dollars and local laborers, tradesmen, and contractors conducted most of the work, furthering the project's priority of investing in the local economy.
