Where are you from?

Originally from Kingsport TN, but moved to Richmond in 1994. Bought a second home in Staunton in 2004.

Why did you choose Staunton for your location?

I fell in love with downtown Staunton the first time I saw it!

What attracted you to this particular project?

The challenge of saving such an important campus of historic buildings.

The Western State Hospital property has over 400,000SF of stunning historic buildings.

The first building, which was built in 1828, will become the Blackburn Inn.

Did you use tax credits to aid in your rehabilitation?

Absolutely. Without both State and Federal Historic Tax Credits these buildings could never be saved!
