Beverly Heritage Center
The Beverly Bank, the former Randolph County Courthouse, the Hill Building, and the Bushrod-Crawford Building form the nucleus of the historic commercial district of Beverly West Virginia. The complex of buildings has been rehabilitated in a phased approach to service as cultural venue and destination. The overall scope of work included the restoration of architectural elements on the interior and exterior such as plaster and decorative metals as well as the sensitive integration of modern building systems to bring the facilities up to code and modern standards.
Phase One included the exterior restoration of the Beverly Bank and former Randolph County Courthouse. The scope of work included window restoration, masonry restoration and cleaning, and roofing.
Phase Two included the interior rehabilitation of the Bank and Courthouse, as well exterior and interior rehabilitation of the Bushrod-Crawford Building. The scope of work included window restoration, masonry restoration and cleaning, roofing, plaster restoration, historic millwork, and finishes.
Phase Three included the complete rehabilitation of the Hill Building as well as the addition of the enclosed Gallery space at the rear of the buildings that allows for an ADA compliant main entry and for additional exhibit space. The new gallery provides visitor orientation and access to and from the four contiguous buildings. The architecture of the gallery is derived from the many porches within Beverly with tapered columns and deep overhangs.
