Pavilion VI

Date(s) of Work: c. 1990-01

Pavilion VI was the fourth pavilion to receive major attention under the comprehensive Academical Village restoration program. Work conducted in 1990-01 constituted essentially complete renovation of the entire building, with only a few issues deferred to future revisits, probably coinciding with occupancy changes.
Pavilion VI was the second pavilion for which a formal historic structure report was prepared.

CHAPTER 7


Pavilion VII

Date(s) of Work: c. 1997 & 1998-2001

Pavilion VII was the sixth pavilion to receive major attention under the comprehensive Academical Village restoration program. In 1997, the roof was restored to replicate Jefferson’s metal shingles. Work conducted in 1998-2001 constituted essentially complete renovation of the entire building, with only a few issues deferred into the future, principally the matter of introducing gas service and altering/repairing chimneys.
Pavilion VII was the fifth pavilion for which a formal historic structure report was prepared. It was the first for which that report was compiled electronically and in an open-ended format, thus initiating an electronic record base for work conducted within the Academical Village.

CHAPTER 8


Pavilion VIII

Date(s) of Work: c. 1984-5

Pavilion VIII was the first pavilion to receive major attention under the comprehensive Academical Village restoration program. Work conducted in 1984-5 constituted essentially complete renovation of the entire building, with only a few issues deferred to future revisits, probably coinciding with occupancy changes. Because residential tenants change in this building every four years, Pavilion VIII should be receiving modest routine work, primarily interior painting, on a more frequent cycle than elsewhere in the Academical Village.
The formal series of historic structure reports did not begin until 1987.
CHAPTER 9
Pavilion IX

Date(s) of Work: c. 1983, 1990 & 2000

Pavilion IX has not yet received major attention under the comprehensive Academical Village restoration program. In 1983, 1990 and 2000, it did receive some interior remodeling.
The formal series of historic structure reports did not begin until 1987.

CHAPTER 10


Pavilion X

Date(s) of Work: c. 1986-87, 1991,1997 & 2001

Pavilion X has not yet received major attention under the comprehensive Academical Village restoration program. In 1986-87, the roof was restored to replicate Jefferson’s metal shingles. In 1991 and 2001, it did receive some interior remodeling while the roof was being restored to replicate Jefferson’s metal shingles. The work of 1997 was reconstruction of the front balcony.
The formal series of historic structure reports did not begin until 1987.

CHAPTER 11


The Hotels

Date(s) of Work: Various

The hotels have received only modest work during the past twenty years, due to occupancy and paucity of funding. Occupancy changes at Hotel B in 1984 and 1997 have occasioned two interior remodeling projects, neither of which could be classified as preservation ventures. In 1989 and 1993, Hotels D and E, respectively, received very modest interior remodeling. In 1994-5 and 1995-6, roofs at Hotels F and A, respectively, were restored to replicate Jefferson’s metal shingles.

CHAPTER 12


The Rotunda

Date(s) of Work: c. Various

By the late 20th century, the Rotunda had become the single remaining building by Jefferson in the Academical Village that had lost most of its archaeological significance, first to fire in 1895 and, in the 1970s, to complete interior rebuilding. During the past twenty years, small episodes of remodeling or redecoration have respected the 1973-76 work, along with the few remnants to have survived the fire, as the present “archaeological base.” Recent exterior work has been of greater consequence. In 2000, a elaborate ramp was inserted below grade along the south side of the cryptoporticus (originally the “gymnasium”) to connect the present Rotunda entry level (originally the basement level) with the topmost level of the Lawn to the south. In that same year, a four-year restoration of deck and balustrade materials began, proceeding at the rate of one deck quadrant per summer from 2000 through 2003. Attendant minor interior renovation for office areas beneath is being conducted simultaneously.
