2019 – 220 Greene Street

220 Greene Street

Owner: Privately Owned

The Threat: This large house located in the Olde Town neighborhood has suffered from deferred
maintenance over the years. While it retains its historical integrity, those features can quickly
deteriorate and the overall condition of the house may decline.

Some History: Constructed at the turn of the twentieth century, 220 Greene Street is an excellent
example of the Colonial Revival style within the neighborhood. The neighborhood was ravaged by the
fire of 1916, and examples of earlier architectural styles are scarce, particularly ones this large in this
corner of the district. City directory research indicates that the property has been steadily occupied
since its construction. Note the outstanding character defining features including the large screened
wraparound porch, large double hung wooden windows, and hipped roof with overhanging eaves and
decorative brackets.

Possible Future Uses: 220 Greene Street should remain a single family residence in the Olde Town
neighborhood. In the event the property would be income producing residential, any alterations to the
floorplan should be undertaken with great care to preserve original volume of the space and character
defining features and original materials. Historic Augusta seeks to work with property owners to
educate them regarding best preservation practices and appropriate methods for completing work on
their historic properties. We are able to point property owners in the direction of contractors or other
service professionals that may be able to work towards a preservation solution, utilizing historic
preservation tax incentives.
