Murphey School: Before & After

One of my consulting projects involved preparing a National Register nomination for the Murphey School, which was being rehabilitated while utilizing historic preservation tax credits.  The Classical Revival style school with Spanish Revival influences dates to 1923 with a 1936 auditorium addition and also possesses a rare surviving Teacherage at the rear of the school, along with a well house and original water tower.  This past summer the work was completed and seeing Murphey School restored back to its original splendor was extremely rewarding!
