Preservation Month, 2024

The Steward's House

Saturday, May 25, 2024, 10 a.m.-12 noon, Washington & Lee University

Don Gaylord, Washington & Lee's University’s Research Archaeologist and Instructor of Anthropology, will give a lecture followed by a walk to the Liberty Hall Plantation ruins and the recently restored foundation of the Steward’s House.

Last year, restoration work began of Structure Nine, Liberty Hall Academy’s Steward’s House, c. 1793. Lexington’s John and Jesse Friedrich, who own New Dimension Masonry, and specialize in historic brick restoration, have been working with Don Gaylord, to restore the original foundation and walls. Washington and Lee students have participated in the evacuation of the site which at one time was also the site of a forge. The house will not be fully rebuilt but will echo the ruins of Liberty Hall's Academy House which sits above on the ridge.
