2015 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN REHABILITATION

MCLEROY HOUSE
Madison, Morgan County

Located in the western gateway to Madison's downtown district, the McLeroy House suffered significantly from neglect and vandalism as it sat vacant for many years. By 2009 the property owner, facing many code violations, requested a permit to demolish the house. With the support of the Madison Historic Preservation Commission, The Georgia Trust was able to acquire the property for resale through its Revolving Fund. Volunteer contributions enabled the house to be stabilized and secured, and a local architect drew rehabilitation plans. In 2011 the McLeroy house was purchased by Sandy Sanford who followed the plans to rehabilitate the structure, performing much of the work himself. Through his efforts and the commitment of Madison's development authority, this neighborhood has seen renewed interest in its revival.
