Fairlawn Mansion and Museum Rehabilitation and Exterior Maintenance
Project Type: Historic Restoration, Superior, WI
Client: Douglas County Historical Society and City of Superior, WI
Since the late 1990s, LHB has provided ongoing design support for the preservation of this Victorian residence constructed from 1889-1891 on the shore of Lake Superior.
Extensive exterior and interior restoration work was done to put the residence back as closely as possible to its original 1890’s appearance and also bringing it up to code compliance as a museum to allow accessibility and safety to the touring public.
LHB is currently working with the City of Superior to undertake the repainting of the exterior including select wood replacement and turret restoration as well as a complete roof replacement.
