The Baccus Hatchery is one of the earliest buildings in Lincoln dating to 1885. It’s served a number of businesses ranging from a hatchery, drug store, hardware store, printing shop, millinery and insurance agency.
The project included: Clearing out all collapsing portions of the building and reconstructing them, stabilizing the rear masonry wall, replacing the roof while saving the original skylight, rebuilding the large storefront windows to match the originals, repairing all plaster walls, installing all new mechanical, and electrical and plumbing systems. What was a home for feral cats and mold now houses a coffee shop and AirBnb loft apartment.
