Munroe House For The Lemoyne Art Foundation

2002 Tallahassee-Leon County Historic Preservation Award

The Munroe House is a 3-story 4,000 SF house that was built in 1906. The historic rehabilitation of the Munroe House was completed in two phases. Phase I consisted of removal of all exterior asbestos siding and abatement of lead paint and interior asbestos. All existing wood siding was prepped and painted and all damaged siding was replaced. A past addition to the house was demolished and the front porch was replaced to its original state. All brick foundations were repaired and cleaned. Interior work included wood rot replacement, the demolition of several walls and installation of new wall openings to make the building more functional for the LeMoyne Art Foundation. The building was brought up to ADA requirements and a visual and audible fire alarm system were installed. Phase II of the project included the installation of new HVAC, electrical, and plumbing systems and fill-out of interior finishes.
