From the President,
Could the Republicans have it right? In claiming that smaller government and more local emphasis is better – so too, historic preservation should look to energize citizens and municipal representatives. Local communities, both cities and smaller towns must become better educated and more self-reliant if they want real success when it comes to historic preservation challenges. Gone seem to be the days of large state agency technical support teams. Staffs are smaller and grants that once were millions are now far less with no guarantees that funds won’t diminish further. Clearly, the panacea for local communities is to take control of their own preservation future by building better local preservation organizations. PreservatiON MASS’ long term goals and focus has been a stronger collective voice in the Preservation Coalition and success like the Real Estate Investment Act. One priority has been a stronger preservation network via our new Regional Advisory Council and commitment to work more locally with communities so that they are better equipped and better understand their roles in the arena of landscapes and historic preservation. Currently only a handful of cities have local preservation organizations. Many of those have little funding and few, if any, staff. That must improve; cities like Worcester and Springfield must have strong organizations working closely with their respective city governments and community leaders if they are to succeed. Cities like Holyoke and Lawrence, with major day to day preservation challenges, rely on whatever outside support they can find. They look to their local communities which often have commissions in disarray and not well equipped to provide necessary support for strong preservation advocacy. PreservatiON MASS, with the assistance of MHC, is focusing on developing an advanced program of our Preservation 101, called Preservation 201. This program will focus on assisting communities to complete survey forms that will be in accordance to MHC methodology. Meanwhile PreservatiON MASS is traveling to cities like Salem, Pittsfield and Holyoke, meeting with mayors and other local government officials in an effort to assist and provide whatever resources to save historic properties, preserve cultural landscapes and bring economic vitality to their communities. In an August 9, 2004 article from the Springfield Republican, Holyoke Mayor Michael Sullivan states, “Support from PreservatiON MASS will help when the city looks for businesses interested in investing in some of the city’s old buildings”. Our vision is grand scale and the road will be long and winding. Yet PreservatiON MASS is looking to reach out and take investment in preservation across the Commonwealth. With the help and dedicated support from our members and constituencies, PreservatiON MASS can make this investment work for the benefit of all. Jim Igoe President, PreservatiON MASS

PRESERVATION COALITION
Erin Kelly

NEWS

BRIEFS

Summer 2004- The hottest topic on the Summer Block is still the Boston Archdiocese. As the late May deadline
for the final closing list loomed, the Coalition prepared itself to field the inquiries and calls for help that would surely resound when the lists became public. The Coalition also met with Kathleen Heck and David O’Brien, who were assisting the Archdiocese in facilitating the closings. This meeting covered topics from specifics on stained glass, the closing timeline, to the re-sale process of the closed properties. Through the entire process, the Coalition has maintained a good working relationship with the Archdiocese, in order to better understand the Canonical

Procedure of restructuring parishes and to pass this knowledge in assistance to the affected parishes. The Coalitions best assistance came in the form of a 600 + page Religious Properties Toolkit. The toolkit, created through the work of the Coalition, including the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Boston Preservation Alliance, Boston Landmarks Commission, Historic Boston Inc., Lowell Historic Board and PreservatiON MASS, was designed to help give parishes a basic knowledge of preservation, tools, agencies, professionals, successful adaptive reuse case studies, etc. The toolkit can be used by parishes closing, remaining open, or any other religious denomination that faces preservation

issues surrounding their property. Since the completion of the toolkit, copies have been requested by several parishes and individuals. The Coalition has also been fielding inquiries and requests for the toolkit from across the country, from Preservation North Dakota to Kalamazoo, Michigan! Clearly the issue of religious property restructuring is not specific to Boston or Massachusetts alone. The Preservation Coalition hopes that the toolkit will be of assistance to preservationists, organizations and individuals across the country. Copies of the Religious Properties Toolkit are available from PreservatiON MASS, NTHP Regional Office, HBI, BPA. Cost is $35 for printing and shipping.

Mark Your Calendars…
PreservatiON MASS will be hosting a cocktail reception from 5:30-8 PM at the Boston Opera House to announce the 10 Most Endangered Historic Resources of Massachusetts! Proceeds from the event will support the continued leadership of PreservatiON MASS as the only statewide non-profit advocacy organization dedicated to preserving the historic resources of the Commonwealth.

Annual Awards Dinner
Erin Kelly ne beautiful evening in May saw preservation taking center stage in Boston. On Thursday, May 6th PreservatiON MASS hosted the Annual Preservation Awards Dinner. The historic Fairmont Copley Plaza, site of the Awards Dinner for the past sixteen years, served as the “see-and-beseen” preservation gathering event of the year. The spotlight of the evening fell on the three award recipients as they were honored in the Copley’s exquisitely restored Grand Ballroom. Senate President Robert E. Travaglini accepted the Paul E. Tsongas Award for his role in the successful passage of the new Massachusetts Rehabilitation Tax Credit. The event was made more memorable as Ms. Thalia Slessinger; Paul Tsongas’ twin sister presented Senate President Travaglini with his award. The Charles W. Elliot Award, recognizing exceptional vision and excellence in planning, was given to Historic Salem Incorporated, which is celebrating its 60th year as a preservation organization. The Preservation Project of the Year Award was given to the Massachusetts State House. Special recognition was given to Stanley Smith, recently retired Executive Director of Historic Boston, Inc. and founding member of Historic Massachusetts, Inc. (now PreservatiON MASS) for his numerous years of dedicated service and leadership in preservation.

From Whence We’ve Come To Where We’re Going –
Judith B. McDonough
In this issue, we resume From Whence We’ve Come To Where We are Going. This final segment previews the activities and challenges ahead that PreservatiON MASS is ready to tackle head on. PreservatiON MASS’ Board of Directors will use its new name to reflect its renewed advocacy mission. Continuing and enlarging its effective lobbying experiences, PreservatiON MASS founded and coordinates The Preservation Coalition of Massachusetts. Keeping preservation issues in the forefront of the Legislature and Administration must be a constant, nurturing activity instead of start-stop crisis advocacy. To imbed outreach at the grass roots level (long a problem for weary preservationists), PreservatiON MASS launched the Regional Advisory Council, which has tapped many tried and true professionals and new faces of preservation to volunteer their expertise to be the eyes and ears and willing ambassadors of PreservatiON MASS at the regional and local level. PreservatiON MASS and the Coalition envision expanding the new Real Estate tax credit to residential properties and will always support consistent funding for the MPPF grants. Advocacy for preservation and the environment clearly impacted policy for the new administration. The Governor’s Fix-It-First policy prompts the transportation agencies to keep existing facilities and rehabilitate bridges among other options, largely because its cheaper in distressed budgetary times. The policy means reinvesting in existing infrastructure in existing communities, while protecting community character and historic resources. Preservation advocates must make sure these are not empty promises. Another technical working group on transportation issues is tackling the Mass Highway Department’s design manual, which had been the root of many anti-preservation actions. Like school closings, the specter of closed religious properties of all denominations looms on the horizon. And the state is not exempt here; consolidating court facilities surely will impact the historic courthouses. Decisions will be difficult for communities, but PreservatiON MASS has an important role in demonstrating the opportunities for adaptive reuse. Recent church and church complex closing decisions of the Archdiocese of Boston has prompted the Preservation Coalition to initiate a Religious Properties subcommittee to assist the archdiocese by developing a “toolkit” that will be helpful in a myriad of development and reuse opportunities, which will respect the significantly historic resources the Archdiocese currently holds and will likely dispose of. Finally, while the writer has the soap box for a moment, PreservatiON MASS can renew its advocacy commitment to the Historic Preservation Fund, which provided major funding to the MHC. Declines in the past few years severely impacted MHC’s staffing and pass-though Survey and Planning grants to cities and towns. And all preservationists need to step up to advocating without hesitancy or fear. Contact Jim Igoe, he can tell you the small steps that collectively lead to grand results. PreservatiON MASS has an important agenda for its third decade and has the ability and will to make it happen. Judith B. McDonough is the former Executive Director of the Massachusetts Historic Commission, and former State Historic Preservation Officer.

She welcomes the opportunity with PreservatiON MASS to combine her professional skills and experience with her passions for preservation.

Got Barns?

The barn. A post and beam or wood framed structure that has grown and rambled in its usage across time. An idyllic image set
upon a vast field is quintessential New England scenery to many people and postcards. Yet many of these essential farm outbuildings are falling off the 21st century radar screen. As agriculture needs and development rapidly changes the physical face of the commonwealth, many barns are threatened. Whether neglect, development or social changes, barns across Massachusetts face an uncertain future. The Task Force. Under the auspices of PreservatiON MASS, the Massachusetts Barn Preservation Task Force seeks to herald the plight of these cultural and historical icons. A non-profit alliance, the Task Force is dedicated to the preservation of Mass. Historic barns and outbuildings in their agricultural settings. The first heraldic effort of the Task
Preservation & People, Summer 2004

Force will culminate in a day long workshop, Saturday, November 6th at the Fisher Museum situated in scenic Harvard Forest in Petersham, Massachusetts. In order to assist in educating barn owners, preservationists and anyone else intrigued by historic barns, the day long workshop offers an array of topics and speakers. Sessions include History of Early New England Barn Construction Techniques, Barn Historic Surveys, Barn Condition Surveys, Barn Preservation, and Preservation Tools. Speakers on these topics will be Jack A. Sobon, registered architect specializing in timber frame construction, Frank White, curator of Mechanical Arts at Old Sturbridge Village, Arron Sturgis, owner of Preservation Timber Framing Inc., and Michael Steinitz, Director of Preservation Planning at the Massachusetts Historical Commission.
