Historic Quarters 760 Restoration Well Under Way

March 2, 2011

Exciting progress is taking place at Quarters 760 at the Navy Yard.  Quarters 760, built in 1917, served as medical officers quarters for the Navy for most of its life.  The building is now an official historic structure zoned for mix-use.  The property is located in the nationally designated Naval Hospital Historic District .

Renovations are underway to revitalize and bring this historic structure back to life.  The intention is to use the building as a showroom for furniture and art.  Parham and Company (Parham) purchased the property, located in the West Yard District of the Navy Yard at Noisette, in late 2010.  Parham currently has a location in downtown Charleston specializing in the antique business.  Their experience and dedication to restoring historic pieces of furniture shows as the progress of Quarters 760 moves forward, leaving no detail left behind.

Completion is scheduled for summer of 2011 and before it’s all over, 760 will have a new roof, all new mechanical systems, minor exterior replacements of wood detail, new paint, and a renewed sense of pride!  We look forward to watching the process progress and are pleased that another historic structure is being preserved and restored.

In other Navy Yard News:

  • The latest issue of Coastal Heritage Magazine shows the mural of Noisette Creek in production by students at the School of the Arts. The mural can now be viewed at the Navy Yard at Building 25 off of N. Hobson Avenue. The Ashley-Cooper Stormwater Education Consortium and the Navy Yard’s very own Michaux Conservancy commissioned the mural. The Navy Yard is proud to be associated with these great groups!  check out page 11 here
