Members-only Landmark Look features unique Terre Haute home

8/12/2015


Faced with abandonment, foreclosure and a bargain-basement sales price, the historic Lambert House’s future looked bleak before serial rehabbers Ken Ramsay and Joe Everhart bought the property in September 2014. Since then, Ramsay and Everhart have embarked on an aggressive rehabilitation of the house that transformed the brick residence into a show-stopper, unearthing an intriguing discovery along the way. The partners are graciously opening the Lambert House for a members-only Landmark Look on September 26.

 

Ramsay & Everhart focused their efforts on returning house to its 1870s appearance with Greek Revival and Italianate features, but remnants of a much older structure were present from the beginning. Additional evidence uncovered the during rehabilitation confirmed early suspicions that the structure evolved from a c.1825 one-story brick house built by Isaac Lambert, one of the first white settlers to the Terre Haute area. 

 

The architectural archaeology doesn’t stop with the current house. During excavation in the crawl space under the rear wing of the house, Ramsay and Everhart uncovered a limestone foundation wall. Based on historical accounts, they believe the foundation likely belonged to an 1822 log home built by Lambert on the same site. With its layers of history and architectural features, the Lambert House is a unique Vigo County landmark.

 

The members-only Landmark Look on September 26 takes place from 3 to 5 p.m. The event is free, but an RSVP is requested online at lamberthouselook.eventbrite.com or by calling 800-450-4534.

McDonald House, Attica, Indiana

McDonald House

Vacant for years, Attica's 1855 McDonald House retains beautiful architectural details, but failing masonry poses an escalating threat. The house needs a buyer capable of taking on the restoration before it’s too late.
