Rose Hill Museum

The Rose Hill Museum project involved structural stability of the building, replacing a retaining wall, and updating accessibility to meet ADA accessibility requirements. This museum is located on the Cumberland Riverfront near the Kentucky State Penitentiary. Over time the soils around this building softened causing shifting of the brick structure and the retaining wall at the front of the site. Modifications were made and new beam supports were added for structural reinforcement of the second level floor structure. As a historical structure, a strong desire of the structural rehabilitation of this building was to keep the existing brick. The updated brick structure includes some new brick as not all of the existing bricks were able to be reused. The exterior was not painted after repointing as the client wanted to provide volunteer work for the inmates at the nearby state penitentiary.
