The North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources is seeking bids to prep and paint an 18th-century tavern in Halifax, NC.

Bids for the historic Eagle Tavern project are due Thursday (April 3).

Scope of Work

The project involves primary paint removal using hand scrapers with rounded corners to blistered or loose areas. Any secondary paint removal should be done using sandpapers in coarse, medium, and fine grits.

Used as a private home for generations, the 1790s-era building was turned over in 1969 to the Diocese of Raleigh, which donated it to the state.

If deemed most effective, a paint stripper may be used. However, the contractor is expected to first ensure that the product will not damage the historic substrate. Only solvent-resistant paint brushes should be used for stripper application. All stripped surfaces must be fully neutralized.

Contractors will apply primer and finish paint to allow for proper coating rates. The Department of Cultural Resources will furnish the coatings, which include a water-repellent preservative, primer, and acrylic paint system for wood.

Any new wood should be treated immediately upon delivery using white shellac or knot sealant, followed by spot prime and sanding.

An elastomeric joint sealant will be used on primed wooden surfaces. All open vertical wooden joints should be caulked.

About the Site

Built in the 1790s as a separate ball room or "long room" for a private-home-turned-turned-tavern built a generation before, the Eagle Tavern became part of the complex of buildings later known as the Eagle Hotel.

Eagle Tavern

The tavern hosted a lofty guest in its original location. The building was moved in 1976 to a historic site.

In 1825, the Marquis de Lafayette stayed at the hotel during his tour of the U.S., and a banquet in his honor was held at the tavern.

The hotel property was deeded in 1969 to the Catholic Diocese in Raleigh, which turned over administration to the state. In 1976, the tavern was moved to a Historic Halifax State Historic Site.
