Reynolds Homestead Renovation
Colley Architects was chosen to design historically based improvements to the stately 1843 Greek Revival homestead of the tobacco related Reynolds family located in Critz, Patrick County, Virginia. Some of the work on the house that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places involved refurbishing windows, repainting metal roofs, designing brick lined gutters, copper gutter and drainage improvements, and other general repair and maintenance items to enhance this historic home. All improvements were performed according to Department of the Interior guidelines for historic properties. Donated to Virginia Tech in the 1970’s, the Homestead is part of the University’s outreach program and serves as a forestry research station. The Homestead remained open throughout the renovations.
