Massachusetts Secretary of State, William Galvin was on hand Friday May 19th as HBI was honored with one of Massachusetts Historical Commission’s (MHC) 37th Annual Preservation Awards for the $3.8 million rehabilitation of the Alvah Kittredge House in Roxbury.
One of 9 project recipients this year, the Kittredge House is one of three Boston projects to receive an award. The other two are the Clapp Family Barn in Dorchester and the new headquarters for North Bennet Street School in the North End.
Other recipients for rehabilitation and restoration from throughout the Commonwealth include the Lord Jeffrey Inn in Amherst, the Station Lofts in Brockton, the Ames Shovel Works in Easton, the Old Ship Meetinghouse in Hingham, the Academy of Music Theatre in Northampton and the Caring Health Center in the Smith Carriage Company in Springfield.
Two individuals were honored this year. Betsy Douglas of Leverett was given an award for her achievements in local preservation, and Dr. Adelaide Cromwell received the MHC’s Individual Liftime Achievement Award.
HBI is grateful to the MHC and Secretary Galvin for their acknowledgement of the Kittredge House project, and for their direct support of that project through the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Tax Credit Program.
