2014 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN REHABILITATION

Tift, Lewis and Herring Halls
Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College Tifton, Tift County

A "Sweetheart Circle," which consists of three buildings at one side of a grand front lawn, was the historic core of several Georgia A&M school campuses founded in the first decade of the 20th century. The Sweetheart Circle of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College consists of the central classroom building, Tift Hall, flanked by two dormitories, Lewis Hall and Herring Hall. Although they were insensitively renovated over the years, these three buildings remained largely intact. The rehabilitation project began in 2008 and involved work on all three buildings to repair water damage, replace windows with historically appropriate designs, and allow for the sensitive addition of upgraded mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. The beautifully rehabilitated Tift, Lewis and Herring Halls once again proudly welcome visitors to the college.
