2014 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN REHABILITATION

Clarkston City Hall Annex
Clarkston, DeKalb County

This late 19th century house stands in a residential neighborhood near the center of town and directly across the street from Clarkston's current City Hall. To accommodate expanding needs, the city acquired this historic property in 2012 for rehabilitation. The house had been the residence of Ms. Mary Morris for 84 years prior to the city's ownership and retained many of its original features and finishes. The rehabilitation project improved the property's accessibility for the public and provided additional office space for the city while maintaining the residential character of the house and its surroundings. Architectural elements such as an elaborate fireplace mantles and existing beadboard ceilings were retained. The Clarkston City Hall Annex stands as an excellent example of a municipal government actively implementing historic preservation strategies in its community.
