Blacksburg firm gets Black House contract
Blacksburg-based Snyder & Associates will tackle a $1.5 million restoration of the town’s Alexander Black House, town officials announced this week.
Work is scheduled to begin Feb. 1 and to include restoring the outside of the historic home, building an addition to the back of the house, and restoring part of the first floor. Snyder & Associates is to complete the work late next year.
A fund-raising campaign continues to pay for restoration of the rest of the building, a town news release said.
Built in 1897 by a great nephew of Blacksburg founder William Black, the Black House was acquired by the town a decade ago and moved out of the way as the Kent Square structures were built. The town plans to use the Black House as a museum and cultural center.
