Invitation to Bid: Renovation and adaptive reuse of the a. quinn jones homestead into a public museum and cultural center

The A. Quinn Jones house is on the National Register of Historic Places since 2010, Number 09001278 NRIS (National Register Information System), as well as is located within the 5th Ave/Pleasant Street Historic district. The house was used by the prominent African-American educator A. Quinn Jones, and his family from 1925 until 1997. The building is a circa 1920 built, wood-frame vernacular structure with bungalow features. The house consists of the main building, a circa 1940 2-bedroom addition, a front and a rear porch. It sits elevated on brick and concrete piers, and has a staggered gable roof; the addition has a nearly flat shed roof. There is a small ca.1940 wood framed storage shed in the rear of the building, with a gabled metal roof, wood siding and 2 wooden doors on the north, window on the south. The building currently does not have any heating or cooling system, previously Window AC units were used. The residence of educator A. Quinn Jones will be converted into a house-museum. This constitutes a change of use into a public building, from Residential occupancy to Assembly. Most of the planned alterations are a result of this change in use and are required by the building and fire-prevention code.
