The McClurg Mansion in Westfield, NY is one of the oldest remaining structures in Western New York, constructed 1818-1820 by the son of the founder of one of the earliest steel mills in Pittsburgh, PA. In its early years, it was called “McClurg’s Folly” by village residents because of its brick construction and high-style design compared to many of the surrounding homes. Since 1950, it has served as the home of the Chautauqua County Historical Society and is home to a unique museum that includes a variety of one-of-a-kind artifacts that tell the history of the region and nation.
Flynn Battaglia Architects has been retained to develop a Historic Structures Report for the mansion, in order to identify current needs and make recommendations for future repair and restoration work including technical considerations and approximate costs. The development of the HSR includes research to complete a comprehensive history of the structure including changes made over time, recommendations for a period of significance, and an extensive exterior and interior analysis of the building’s condition. Analysis is underway and the report will be completed in early 2015.
