Historic Augusta, Inc. is pleased to announce the next installment of its architectural history lecture series. Ellen Neal Pruitt, local architect and historian, will present “Victorian Architecture during the Gilded Age 1866-1900” at Church of the Good Shepherd, 2230 Walton Way in Augusta, Georgia on Tuesday, February 5, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.
Using regional examples, this presentation will explore how the Industrial Revolution and the reemergence of hope after the Civil War were catalysts for the exuberant architectural styles of the Victorian Era.
Ellen Neal Pruitt is a registered architect and has practiced in the Augusta area for over 30 years. She graduated with a Master of Architecture and a Bachelor of Science in Design from Clemson University where her studies focused on preservation and the evolution of architectural styles. She has taught various courses on the history of American architecture for Augusta University, lectured for civic groups including Historic Augusta, and written articles and conducted research on numerous Augusta buildings, including the Waterworks facilities, Greene Street development, and Augusta churches. She has been blessed to work on many of Augusta’s architectural gems during her career, from the Old Government House and the Cotton Exchange to most recently the new offices of the Convention and Visitors Bureau and the restoration of the Jewish Synagogue/Court of the Ordinary. She practices architecture with Studio 3 Design Group and enjoys time with her three grown children, her church family, and her own eternal renovation project on the Hill.
