Restoring the Hawley-Hutzler House (Virtual Talk)

October 22, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm

By Donation | Register

In 2019, the grand Victorian 8,000 square foot Hawley-Hutzler Mansion went on the market. The mansion was once the home of the Hutzlers, who owned the famous department store of the same name. The mansion has gone through significant alterations since it was built in 1887, including being converted to offices, and in the 1970s, split up into apartments. Needless to say, there would be a lot of work to do to restore this mansion to its former grandeur.

Architect Ward Bucher, AIA of Encore Sustainable Architects will be presenting. He and his wife Lisa Harley Johnson have taken up the task of renovating the mansion — the ultimate historic preservation passion project. We will hear about the interesting history of the home and its previous residents, and the restoration work currently underway.

To learn more about the mansion and the restoration work, take a look at the blog Ward and Lisa began. And see an interactive 3D model of the home here.
