Bally Blacksmith Shop

Project Type: Historic Structures Report and Restoration Documents, Grand Marais, MN

Client: Cook County Historical Society

LHB was selected by Cook County Historical Society (CCHS) to conduct a Historic Structure Report on the Bally Blacksmith Shop. Our team investigated the physical changes the building had undergone; assessed its current condition from a structural and historic architecture systems perspective; and developed historically sensitive recommendations for repair. At the conclusion of the project, CCHS had a document summarizing this information that also outlines a holistic list of work to be undertaken, the timeframe in which to undertake it, and the cost for the work.

LHB also worked with CCHS to develop restoration documents for the Shop from the earlier Historic Structures Report authored by LHB. The scope for the restoration includes:

  • Historically sensitive repairs to the exterior and interior
  • New foundation/structural support system
  • New ADA compliant ramp
  • New lighting for wayfinding and exhibit display
