Abstract: The Matthew Jones House is located on Joint Base Langley-Eustis (Eustis), Virginia. The house is a Virginia Historic Landmark (121-0006) and also listed on the National Register of Historic Places (#69000342). The house is now being used as an architectural-study museum with 90 architectural features labeled as teaching points. The structure illustrates the architectural transition from the post-medieval vernacular to the Georgian style to the Victorian style. All buildings, especially historic ones, require regular planned maintenance and repair. The most notable cause of historic building element failure and/or decay is not the fact the historic building is old, but rather it is caused by an incorrect or inappropriate repair and/or basic neglect of the historic building fabric. This document is a maintenance manual compiled with as-is conditions of construction materials of the Matthew Jones House. The Secretary of Interior Guidelines on rehabilitation and repair per material are discussed to provide the cultural resources managers a guide to maintain this historic building. This report satisfies Section 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) of 1966 as amended and will help the Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Fort Eustis Cultural Resources Management to manage this historic building.
