Fall 2002
2002 has been a monumental year for HistoricMassachusetts and the preservation community as awhole:
A Coalition of preservation organizations from across the Commonwealth wasestablished to strengthen preservation advocacy, legislation and organizationalstrategies.
The Preservation Awards Dinner in May at the Copley Plaza Hotel was His-toric Massachusetts’ most successful event to date.
The Massachusetts Preservation Projects Fund (MPPF) received $15 million infunding, which means we can look forward to another year of important preser-vation projects throughout the state.
The annual Statewide Preservation Conference and Leadership Training Semi-nar took place this September in New Bedford, with great interest and enthusi-asm from all who participated.
Historic Massachusetts elected a new Chair and Vice-Chair for the Board of Directors and completed a strategic planning process in which a new name,PRESERVATI
ON Mass
, and image were developed for our organization.And so, in selecting the 2002 Ten Most Endangered Historic Resources, we knewwe needed nothing short of a powerful and impactive list for such an ambitious year.From Adams to Attleboro; and from Downtown Holyoke, an historic city strugglingto survive economically and architecturally, to tiny East Brookfield Railroad Station,an H.H. Richardson-designed station now used for storage, this year’s list runs thegamut of preservation issues facing Massachusetts’ communities today. As the per-ception of preservation evolves from it being primarily an individual building andlandscape conservation tool to it being an economic and community revitalizationstrategy, our concept of how resources are endangered has also evolved. For it’s not only their past historical and cultural significance that makes them resources—it’salso their present and future potential to enrich our lives as locations for business,education, religious worship or the enjoyment of nature that makes them so valu-able. Since the first announcement of Massachusetts’ Ten Most Endangered in 1993,the listing has been an encouraging and sustaining event that brings attention to his-toric valuable resources through coverage in the press, radio and television. With2002 being a year of change, we realized we must go a step further in our presenta-tion and involvement with the Endangered Resources. That’s why we developed anentire event, the Fall Preservation Celebration on November 19th, around theannouncement of the Ten Most Endangered. That’s why the Endangered SelectionCommittee, with renewed energy and enthusiasm, will now be in continuous con-tact with resource nominees, providing them with helpful tools and advice forachieving successful preservation advocacy, so that more and more properties maybe deemed “saved” each year and removed from Endangered status.We are honored and excited to showcase the Ten Most Endangered HistoricResources in the fall newsletter. I can think of no better themes for the final newslet-ter of 2002 than preservation, inspiration, perseverance and hope.
Here’s hoping 2003 will bring us even closer to our preservation and organi za- tional goals!
