Logan Farm House Renovation
Ribbon CuttingOn, Thursday, October 5 the City of Acworth officially cut the ribbon on the Farm House at Logan Farm Park.  The renovation of this mid 1800's facility started in January of 2017.  Macallan Construction was the General Contractor on the project and Norman Askins was the architect. 

The project included a full restoration of the original structure.  Most all of the original siding, flooring, walls, and ceilings were in good shape and able to be reused.  The chimneys were structurally unsound and replaced with reclaimed brick.  A cedar shake roof was placed on the original structure.  

In order to make the facility more functional for events, the city removed the modern additions on the back of the house and built a new structure that houses the restroom, catering prep area, and meeting space.  The city partnered with Cobb Landmarks to furnish the original structure period specific.  

The Farm House is currently available for reservation! Please visit our Rental Facilities Page for more information. 

For questions on this project, email James Albright at jalbright@acworth.org.
