2015 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN REHABILITATION

MCKEY-SEAGO HOUSE
Valdosta State University
Valdosta, Lowndes County

Today the McKey-Seago House stands alone among late 20th century commercial buildings in what was once a thriving residential area. The house was constructed by the McKey family between 1915 and 1920 as a modest one-story house, but the later addition of a second floor dramatically altered the appearance to what we see today. Since 1995 Valdosta State University has owned the property and used it as space for various administrative offices, but by 2013 the house was in need of repairs and systems upgrades. Thanks to Valdosta State University's commitment to preservation, the historic McKey-Seago house remains as a testament to Valdosta's history while it serves as a home for the university's Office of Social Equity.
