Abstract : The Matthew Jones House (MJH) is located on Joint Base Langley-Eustis (Eustis) (JBLE-E), Virginia. The house is a Virginia Historic Landmark (121-0006) and also listed on the National Register of Historic Places (#69000342). All buildings, especially historic ones, require regular, planned, and appropriate maintenance and repair. After identifying a variety of issues with the house for JBLE-E, architectural historians at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center-Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (ERDC-CERL) requested technical assistance from the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT) with analyzing existing materials, providing specifications for appropriate treatment materials, and making priority-level recommendations for MJH treatment by taking into account conditions and budget. The works scope included the roofing, masonry, and HVAC systems of the structure. This report summarizes the research and findings by the NCPTT. It also includes an engineers report and other supplemental information. This work will continue to assist JBLE-E in maintaining this historic building.
