The restoration and renovation of Corinthian Hall, which opened to the public in October 2021, was Stage I of a multi-staged, multi-year expansive project to rehabilitate the entire 3.5-acre historic property.
The entire property was the former private residence of lumber baron R.A. Long and his family. Completed in 1910, the property originally included: Corinthian Hall, the mansion; a Carriage House with Paddock Area; the Horse Trainer’s Home; a Garden/Carpenter’s Shed, a Conservatory with Pergola, a Greenhouse, and the Perimeter Fence and Gates. In the early 1950s, the Conservatory was transformed into a Planetarium, and in the 1960s, the Greenhouse was removed.
Currently, the Museum working with International Architects Atelier on architectural design for the Carriage House—starting with Ed Dwight’s Weathervane, a Skyspace by James Turrell, and JewelHouse by Summer Wheat.
