2005 Best Commercial Remodel

This was one of the first Methodist Churches in the United States. The site was purchased by the church in 1835, and was used by the church until 1889, when the congregation relocated. After the relocation, the “Centenary Church” became the Centenary Building which housed various tenants over the next 110 years, standing in good condition until the destructive fire of 1999, which drove out 58 people and four businesses.

Tuckey Restoration was involved in the emergency response and stabilization phases immediately after the fire. They were retained by the Cumberland County Redevelopment Authority, who took possession of the buildings after the fire, to secure the building, remove debris and winterize it. In 2002, Kenneth Tuckey, President of the Tuckey Companies began the process of forming a group to purchase the old buildings and develop them into commercial and residential units. The purchase occurred and ground was broken in July of 2003. This major restoration was accomplished while working with local, state and national historical agencies, and was rebuilt to comply with all ADA requirements. The aspects of the construction are too numerous to detail here, but this historic structure has been preserved and continues to be a reminder of the heritage of Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
