Austin, Texas — Preservation Texas, Inc. has announced that the restoration of the Proctor-Green House in Cuero, Texas will receive a 2016 Honor Award for Restoration on February 18, 2016. The Honor Award will be presented at a special ceremony at the historic State Theatre on Congress Avenue in Austin as part of the Preservation Texas 2016 Summit.
Located at 307 Terrell Street in the Terrell-Reuss National Register Historic District, the Proctor-Green House was built about 1891 for attorney David C. Proctor. Built in a transitional style with Queen Anne, Shingle and Colonial Revival details, the house is a Cuero landmark.
For the restoration, existing historic materials throughout were refinished and, when missing or too deteriorated, replaced with appropriate material. Original windows were restored, as were fireplaces and a showpiece grand staircase flooded with light from stained glass windows.
“Cuero is a wonderful historic city, and the restored Proctor-Green House takes its place as a source of community pride,” said Preservation Texas executive director Evan Thompson. “This project reinforces the integrity of the Terrell-Reuss National Register district, and the restoration of the house’s historic windows cannot be praised enough.”
The project team included owner Robert Oliver and Fisher Heck Architects.
Founded in 1985, Preservation Texas is a member-supported non-profit historic preservation advocacy and education organization based in Austin, Texas. The organization does not receive any government funding.
