Historic Rappahannock Tribe Chief’s House

Norman Company is working with the Rappahannock Tribe of Virginia and architectural firm Studio Ammons of Petersburg on a phased historic restoration project of the “Chief’s House”, a property that dates to the late 1700’s and was once used by Rappahannock tribal leaders. Located in Indian Neck, Virginia, the property has been abandoned for decades and overtaken by time and nature. The tribal council selected NCI for this restoration project because of its experience and reputation for historic preservation work throughout Central Virginia. The goal of this project is to take steps to prevent further deterioration while preserving as much of the original structure as possible. Some of the work in Phase 1 includes foundation repairs; masonry work on piers, chimneys, and steps; rebuilding or replacing exterior windows and doors; repairing or replacing exterior siding, and other work. We will continue to post photos here to show the progress of this project.
