Yawkey House Museum

Forensic Assessment, Historic Structure Report, Preservation Planning, Public - 2011

About The Project

The Classical Revival-style Cyrus & Alice Yawkey House, constructed in 1901, is owned by the Marathon County Historical Society and functions as a house museum and as a facility available for community and private events. Isthmus Architecture, Inc. developed a Historic Structure Report for the property that provides an analysis of existing conditions and recommendations for structural improvements in addition to mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems renovations. Further, the report offers general preservation recommendations, a landscape treatment plan and interior finish recommendations. The project was funded in part by the Jeffris Family Foundation.

Isthmus Architecture, Inc. oversaw restoration of this house museum, including the adjacent carriage house and gardens. The Grand Opening was held in May of 2008.
