2014 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN REHABILITATION

108 Lee Street
Cartersville, Bartow County

The small one-story house at 108 Lee Street in Cartersville's West End Historic District likely dates to the late 1930s. The district saw an influx of residential development from the 1870s through the 1930s, resulting in a variety of residential structures that reflect different architectural styles of this period. This section of the West End Historic District contains numerous rental properties, and 108 Lee Street suffered from a lack of maintenance and severe deterioration by the time it was purchased by a local couple in 2012. The project included removing non-historic dilapidated additions on the rear of the house, restoring windows to match originals, foundation repair and roof work. The result of this project is a rehabilitated rental property that contributes to the revitalization of this historic neighborhood.
