People joining Adventures in Preservation’s newest historic preservation-based service project will not only help restore one of Virginia’s original Texaco stations, they’ll also learn a lot about restoring historic windows. “Glazing at the Gas Station” is scheduled for May 22-28, 2011 in Gloucester, Virginia; registration is now open. As the name suggests the focus of the week is repairing the many windows at the Edge Hill Service Station.

The site, purchased by the Fairfield Foundation in May 2010 in order to preserve it, will ultimately have a new – and greener - life as small enterprise office space. The majority of the restoration work will be completed by volunteers. In May, AiP volunteers will work with historic window restoration experts to repair the large garage door windows and the restroom and service area window. As part of the project, they will address the need to increase energy efficiency while remaining sensitive to the building’s historic fabric.

The service station originally used bright exterior lights to attract customers and illuminate work areas. That much lighting is considered wasteful today, so the team will also examine the building’s electrical systems and an appropriate - but efficient -lighting scheme for the building today.

This is a great experience for anyone interested in industrial heritage, roadside attractions, or early 20th century architecture. The project, hoping to draw volunteers from throughout the country, is scheduled for May 22-28, 2011. The cost is $1,500, which includes lodging, breakfast and lunch; field trips; insurance and instruction.

Adventures in Preservation, a non-profit organization, has supported community-based heritage preservation projects since 2002. Its volunteer vacations provide meaningful opportunities to travel, learn historic preservation skills, restore buildings, and renew communities. Learn how AiP harnesses the power of volunteers and the strengths of local communities to make a difference at adventuresinpreservation.org/.

The Fairfield Foundation (fairfieldfoundation.org), a non-profit organization, is dedicated to archaeological and historical research, public education and preservation in Gloucester Country. Centered at the 17th- and 18th-century plantation and ancestral home of the Burwell family, Fairfield, the foundation contributes to knowledge of plantation life and supports the preservation of historic resources within the region.
