Each year the Preservation Alliance recognizes a building project completing a preservation achievement and person known for spear-heading a preservation project. This year’s building project is located on Route 250 in Phillipi. This stately brick home is set against the rolling hills of Barbour County and was built circa 1870. The mansion has been restored with great attention to authenticity and features homemade brick and walnut woodwork throughout. The barn was built circa 1850 and has been restored. The site’s most recent project was the restoration of historic masonry completed by Keystone Waterproofing Inc. The mansion is used for educational purposes and is a popular stop for bus tours. It is so lovely that weddings and parties are often held there.
Congratulations to Dr. Ann Serafin!
