2004 Best Commercial Historic Renovation

This is the complete restoration of the 1876 Train Depot in Matthews, North Carolina. The numerous occupants since the stationís decommission in 1958 managed to remove or damage much of itís original floor structure. After the building was moved to a new foundation just yards from the original, it was stripped of all interior and exterior components to reveal the original timber frame structure. There were numerous timbers missing and the door and window placements were not original. Many hours were spent listening to stories and viewing old photographs to capture as much original detail as possible. The project even included buying back original signs and railroad equipment that had been removed (or stolen) after the station was decommissioned. The town was committed and their support was tremendous. The building now houses the Matthews Chamber of Commerce and a Historical Museum of the town.
