Rehabilitation of the Savin-Conrey House in Chesapeake City Wins Award

From the Maryland Historical Trust —-

The Savin-Conrey House located at 221 George Street was built by Thomas Conrey c.1850 and is located in the Chesapeake City Historic District along the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal. The house was used as a telephone exchange at one time and later rented as a private residence. After many years of only minimal basic maintenance to the house the trees had become overgrown, water leaks damaged the roof and caused significant mold problems. Alan Marine and Catherine Soukup carefully rehabilitated the house, repairing the existing historic materials wherever possible, and replacing deteriorated and inappropriate materials with historically compatible new materials where necessary. This modest and unassuming house has been transformed from an eyesore to an attractive home that Chesapeake City can be proud of.
