The Rotunda and Beyond: Recent Historic Preservation at the University of Virginia

Since completing renovations to the Rotunda nearly three years ago, the preservation staff at UVA has been busy with many other projects in and around Thomas Jefferson’s Academical Village. Jody Lahendro, Supervisory Historic Preservation Architect with UVA’s Facilities Planning & Construction, will briefly review the Rotunda project before presenting many of the recent historic preservation projects at their various stages of design and construction. These newer projects include renovations to Pavilion VIII, restoration of Jeffersonian flat roofs, research of historic exterior paint colors, renovations to the President’s House on Carr’s Hill, restoration of the Lawn colonnade columns, and the Memorial to Enslaved Laborers.

Reunions Seminars are a special opportunity is for local UVA alumni, parents and friends. The Lifetime Learning Program and the Alumni Association collaborate to offer a unique educational experience during Reunions Weekends. Selected Reunions Seminars are free and open for you to attend and held in Charlottesville on the University’s Grounds.
