2014 PRESERVATION AWARDS: CHAIRMAN'S AWARD AND EXCELLENCE IN REHABILITATION

Housworth-Moseley House
Lithonia, DeKalb County

This vernacular farmhouse was constructed in 1843 as a hall-and-parlor home and remained in the same family for 160 years. After the property went through foreclosure, it was purchased by The Georgia Trust's Revolving Fund program in 2011 and resold to preservation-minded owners who quickly began work to realize their dream for this historic farmstead. The sensitive rehabilitation project included repairing or replacing and painting the clapboard siding, a new shake roof, and the replacement of non-historic windows with replications of the last original window remaining on the house. The owners chose to maintain the historic character of the house's interior by leaving the wooden interior walls bare and the slant of the interior doorways intact.
