Historic Boston will secure the building and assess feasible redevelopment options for the building’s rehabilitation and re-use. At a round of community meetings in the Highland Park neighborhood, HBI has discovered considerable concern for the building’s current condition and relief at the prospect of seeing the house saved and brought back into the life of the community.
In 2002, HBI completed the rehabilitation of the 1875 Alvah Kittredge Park Row Houses opposite the Kittredge House. Kittredge Park, which lies between the row houses and the Alvah Kittredge House has been the subject of considerable neighborhood mobilization and fundraising and will soon undergo redesign as a passive neighborhood park.
Over the coming weeks, we will update you regularly about progress at the Kittredge House, and tell you more about the history of this important building and generations of its occupants.
