The current Spanish-style Houghton School building was constructed in 1916 after a fire destroyed the original. Over three phases, Dickinson Architects renovated it into a private Christian school housing kindergarten through eighth grade. The building now features 13 classrooms, a cafeteria, 320 seat auditorium, several administrative office spaces, and an office suite. Restoration included refinishing the original hardwood floors and doors, and exposing the brick walls, as well as repairing and restoring the woodwork to its original historic character.
This project received 2 Historic Preservation Awards for Phase I – one from Historic Augusta and the other from the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation.
