Historic Hope Lodge ~ Interior Restoration

Historic Hope Lodge

Hope Lodge is a National Historic Landmark that served as the headquarters for General Washington's Surgeon during the the 1777 encampment in Fort Washington. Old Village has had the pleasure to do interior painting and plaster restoration here.

Hope Lodge was built between 1743 and 1748 by Samuel Morris, a prosperous Quaker entrepreneur. Morris acted as a farmer, ship owner, miller, iron-master, shop-owner, and owner of the mill now known as Mather Mill. Hope Lodge is an excellent example of early Georgian architecture, and it is possible that Edmund Woolley, architect of Independence Hall, offered advice in building. Samuel Morris owned the estate until his death in 1770, when it was inherited by his brother Joshua. Joshua in turn sold the property and dwelling to another Philadelphia merchant, William West.

Plaster Restoration

We restored the plaster on this wall that had been contoured to allow room for the window, painted the walls and ceiling a flat white, and a colonial mustard on the window, trim and crown molding.

Plaster Ceilings

Ceilings can be tricky but we think we did a pretty good job on this 200 year plaster ceiling at Hope Logde. We did some minor repairs to the plaster then paint the entire room in a nice off-white to match the existing colors.
