Preservation & People,
Summer 2003
From the Chair of the Board
Few would disagree that summer is the most pictur-esque, lively and exciting season in Massachusetts!
From the incredible musical and theatrical performances at Tangle-wood and Jacob’s Pillow in the Berkshires, to the charmingseascapes of Cape Cod, the Commonwealth has no shortage of his-toric and cultural resources that flourish in summertime. Summer isalso peak tourism season in Massachusetts; and as research hasproven time and time again, one of the key reasons people vacationin our state is to experience our heritage through our many well-preserved historic buildings, neighborhoods and landscapes. For thisreason, preserving our historic resources is crucial to sustaining andgrowing our economy. And while some of our most famous historic resources—the StateHouse, Faneuil Hall Marketplace, The Mount and the village of Deerfield—are secure in their futures, many of our lesser-knownhistoric places are still struggling with preservation issues. As thecountless phone calls and emails, and the dozens of Ten MostEndangered Historic Resource nominations we receive each yearconfirm, the need for strong and widespread preservation advocacy,education, and rehabilitation programs is greater than ever.In this issue of 
 Preservation & People
, PreservatiON MASS ishighlighting some recent challenges encountered and victoriesachieved by groups across the Commonwealth in their ongoingwork to preserve our heritage. Their stories prove that, even in thisdifficult economic climate, historic preservation efforts can, andmust, continue. Also in this issue, we would like to update you on some of ourown recent activities and achievements, such as the FurthermoreFoundation grant we’ve been awarded to print our long-awaitedSchool Building Initiative report; and the Preservation Coalition’sappearance before the State Legislature’s Joint Committee on Taxa-tion, to testify in support of the Massachusetts Real Estate Invest-ment Act (H.2903).This is an exciting and crucial time for historic preservation inMassachusetts. Please read the articles in this newsletter and visitour website, www.preservationmass.org, on a regular basis to stayinformed about the latest preservation issues, events and programstaking place in Massachusetts and across the nation. As always, Iwelcome your input as to how PreservatiON MASS can be a moreeffective preservation advocate in your community. Please feel freeto contact us any time with questions, suggestions and ideas.
