2014 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN REHABILITATION

Ashley Hall
Valdosta State University Valdosta, Lowndes County

Constructed in 1921 as a girls' dormitory, Ashley Hall was one of the original Spanish Mission style buildings of the State Normal School, now Valdosta State University. The building has served a variety of uses and undergone many renovations. The recent rehabilitation restored the building as closely as possible to its original character by repairing the existing clay tile roof, trim work and original heart pine floors. Layers of interior paint were also removed to restore the original dark stain finishes, which created a dramatic difference in the feel of the space. The Ashley Hall rehabilitation project, which cost $5.5 million and took two years to complete, resulted in a beautiful new home for the Department of History and Department Philosophy and Religious Studies, and is a standing testament to the campus's architectural past.
