SUMMER 2006

Destruction Cometh

But Salvation Can Prevail. See Page 7

From the President, Often times in life, the ups can only be appreciated by living the downs. So too is this relevant in preservation, the juxtaposed ups and downs, highs and lows, successes and defeats. The lows: the loss of Immaculate Conception Church in Holyoke, a 2003 Ten Endangered after a long fought battle to avoid demolition. The highs: the Granite Building in Milford, a 2002 Ten Endangered gets relocated and reborn as the new offices for Consigli Construction Company. As preservationists we can revel in the highs, but we must also learn to take the lows, find the proverbial silver lining and learn from the whole experience. But as the dog days of summer are upon us, good feelings prevail. Summertime at Preservation Massachusetts is a time for us to catch up on projects, begin our Ten Most Endangered Program, go on site visits and make connections through our ongoing advocacy outreach. Our summer got off to a great start with a tremendously successful Annual Awards Dinner on May 11th. In early June our State Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit cap was raised to $50 million annually, retroactive back to January 2005. This was a phenomenal success for Preservation Massachusetts and countless projects and communities across the state. This tax credit has truly made the impossible, possible. As you can see in our Statewide Treks section of this newsletter, we have been traveling and speaking in numerous venues in and around the state. We look forward to getting out on the road and meeting with our preservation partners, seeing ongoing projects and finding how our organization can be of assistance as the statewide advocacy organization. As we plan for the Fall and the close of our fiscal year, I would like to thank all of those committed and valued members of Preservation Massachusetts for their continued generosity and support. I also ask anyone who has not renewed to please consider your membership the key to ensuring that our great programming will be here next summer and beyond, ready to serve you. So as the summer continues, we look to the highs to keep our energy and motivation up! Best Summer Wishes to All!

Preservation & People, Summer 2006

One of the more enjoyable aspects of being a statewide organization is the opportunity to travel our great state and visit with our preservation partners in their local communities. This is a wonderful opportunity to see first hand the hard work many of our partners are undertaking. Whether it is a keynote speech or an annual meeting, a summertime preservation trek is always worth the ride! New London, CT: New England Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions Annual Meeting Although technically out of “jurisdiction”, Preservation Massachusetts gave a luncheon presentation to the Board of NEAAPA on Historic Amusement Parks, highlighting classic parks like Revere Beach, Paragon Park, and the issues facing smaller parks and preservation initiatives. Great photos from roller coasters to carousels, because everyone loves an amusement park. Portsmouth, NH: National Trust Regional Meeting The opportunity to join not only our state colleagues, but our regional partners as well is always a great experience. This three day meeting allowed us to listen to and discuss common issues in a broader context and learn what our regional partners are working on. Our state tax credit was a popular item and is serving as an inspiration to other states pursuing their own tax credits. Nantucket: Preservation Month Preservation Massachusetts was called upon to give a statewide perspective keynote speech at a reception to launch the beginning of Preservation Month on Nantucket! West Springfield: Eastern States Exposition, “The Big E” With the popularity of our Historic Amusement Park speech, we were asked to give our Amusement Park presentation at the Annual Board meeting for the Eastern States Exposition, with a focus on country fairs. Over 180 members from the six New England States gathered to hear fun recollections and remember interesting history. Worcester: Preservation Worcester’s Annual Meeting At beautifully restored Tuckerman Hall, we listened to the achievements and applauded the great work of our colleagues at Preservation Worcester. Steve Thomas, of “This Old House” fame gave a wonderful keynote about his interesting travels and current work with the History Channel. Salem: Historic Salem Annual Meeting and Awards Another chance to recognize the work of a preservation colleague! Jim Igoe co-presented HSI’s awards with Dr. Kimberly Alexander in recognition of numerous projects and individuals in Salem. Prior to the meeting, Preservation Massachusetts was treated to a walking tour of some recent development sites and issues.

We welcome the opportunity to “get into the field” and really see preservation in action! Look for continued travels and encounters in our next issues!

Preservation Massachusetts Honored!
On May 25, Preservation Massachusetts was honored by WHALE at their Annual Meeting and Awards. Executive Director Lisa Sughrue and President Dan Perry presented Jim Igoe with the George C. Perkins President’s Award, WHALE’s highest honor. The Perkin’s Award is given to an individual or organization whose contributions that have had positive impacts on the quality of life of Greater New Bedford and beyond. Specifically, Preservation Massachusetts was awarded for our advocacy efforts, especially through our 10 Most Endangered Program and our State Tax Credit, which several New Bedford projects have sought to take advantage of. To be recognized by our colleagues, who know just how hard preservation and non-profit life can be, we are truly honored and pleased to have been given this prestigious award.

WHALE presents the Perkins Award: (l-r) Lisa Sughrue, Erin Kelly, Dan Perry and Jim Igoe

Assistant Director Named
Preservation Massachusetts is pleased to announce that Erin Kelly has been promoted to the position of Assistant Director. For the past two and a half years, Erin has served as the Office Manager and Preservation Advocate by running the office, planning fundraising events, giving programmatic support and coordinating the Ten Most Endangered. The role of Assistant Director will incorporate more hands-on work with development and fundraising and allow for Erin to become more involved in existing programs, such as the Regional Advisory Council and proposed programs such as the Western and Central Massachusetts Circuit Riders. Her work with planning and managing events, publications and outreach will continue. By working with President Jim Igoe, the Board of Directors and the organization’s constituency she will continue to promote and advance Preservation Massachusetts as a relevant, impactful and strong preservation organization serving the entire Commonwealth. A native of southeastern Massachusetts, Erin began at Preservation Massachusetts in 2004 and is a graduate of the Roger Williams University Historic Preservation Program.

In Memory

On June 16th, Preservation Massachusetts was saddened to learn of the sudden death of Bob Kuehn, longtime Board Member and former President of this organization. Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, he completed his undergraduate and graduate studies at Yale University, in Architecture and Urban Studies. He was also a Fulbright Scholar at the University of London. Throughout his career, Bob was deeply committed to affordable housing, historic preservation and the arts. As founder and President of Keen Development Corporation, he developed more than 3,000 mixed-income homes over the past twenty five years, received numerous awards for his preservation work and helped secure permanent live/work space for many

Boston artists. Some of his preservation projects with Preservation Massachusetts (then called Historic Massachusetts, Inc.) included the Chelsea Post Office in Chelsea and the Walter Baker Lofts in Dorchester. At the time of his death, Bob was serving as President of Citizen’s Housing and Planning Association (CHAPA), a Massachusetts Advisor to the National Trust for Historic Preservation, an extremely dedicated member of the Community Preservation Coalition and of course, a Director of Preservation Massachusetts. Bob Kuehn touched hundreds of lives through his life and work and will be remembered for his intelligence, wisdom and his ability to embrace a challenge. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

It comes as no surprise that the State Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit has been the primary focus for the Coalition for the past four years. The program has provided a great incentive to and lure for those looking to undertake preservation projects across the state. Yet there are many more issues and opportunities for the Coalition to undertake and expand upon. A Residential Tax Credit: There was a residential tax credit component included with the original 2003 legislation that was omitted in order to pass the commercial credit. Now that the commercial credit has been up and running for over two years, the Coalition has begun researching various residential tax credit programs in states such as Maryland, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Virginia. In June, Brad

The Massachusetts Preservation Coalition Summer Update
Schide, Field Service Officer for the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation met with the Coalition to discuss their homeowner credit. In September, Ted Saunderson, Deputy SHPO from Rhode Island will discuss Rhode Island’s residential credit. It is an interesting opportunity for further thought and research. Religious Properties Subcommittee: With the church dispositions ongoing and no dialogue with the Archdiocese, the Subcommittee recently met to discuss future options. The group has decided to take on a more statewide focus on church closings, as the Springfield Diocese is now undertaking dispositions as well. Recent final drafts of an MHC survey of historic properties within the Boston Archdiocese offer valuable information about the numerous his-

toric properties threatened with closure. Reaching out for partnerships: The Coalition continually reaches out to find new partners and alliances for the Preservation Community. In April, Marc Draisen of MAPC spoke about his organization’s work and role in the Commonwealth. It is important for the Coalition to recognize the importance of partnerships that can help to promote historic preservation across the State. We keep updated on current issues and events with all of our Coalition members Our Coalition subcommittees will continue to meet throughout the summer. If there is an issue that should be brought to the Coalition’s attention, please contact Preservation Massachusetts at 617-723-3383.

Requiem:

Immaculate Conception Church
In late May and early June, the Springfield Diocese began the long-feared demolition of Immaculate Conception Church in Holyoke. Named to Preservation Massachusetts’ Ten Most Endangered in 2003, this century French-Gothic church served as a parish for French-Canadian immigrants in Holyoke when it was built in 1927. It was modeled after New York City’s renowned Church of St. Vincent Ferrer, with a capacity for 1,100 parishioners. As attendance dwindled and ethnic makeup of the church changed, the Diocese of Springfield sought to demolish the church to build a smaller church on the same site, citing high maintenance and restoration costs. Efforts from local citizens in Holyoke, the Immaculate Conception Preservation Trust, the Northeast Office of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and Preservation Massachusetts were hard fought, but it was not to be. The demolition of this landmark church was captured in photographs by Mary Anne O’Connor, http://www.pbase.com/maryanne16/immacconc. As Diocese face parish closures and religious property dispositions, we hope that the fate of Immaculate will not set the standard for what is to come as we work to promote the historic and community significance of many religious properties in Massachusetts. Listed in 2002 as one of Massachusetts Ten Most Endangered Resources, the Granite School in Milford now has a new lease on life. In 2004 Consigli Construction Company, Inc. took interest in this local landmark and undertook the task of dismantling the building block by block and relocating it to a nearby plot of land. The building was re-assembled, restored and is now the corporate headquarters for Consigli, a Milford based 100 year family owned business! The Granite Building was constructed in 1896 as a grammar school for St. Mary’s Church and is made out of local pink Milford granite. The building was ravaged by fire in 1985 and sat vacant for nearly 20 years until Consigli undertook its restoration. Preservation Massachusetts applauds Consigli Construction Company for the success of the Granite Building and their constant commitment to historic preservation in Massachusetts!

Expanding Preservation Education
Workshops in Historic Preservation at the Local Level
Preservation 101:
Preservation Massachusetts is the statewide historic preservation nonprofit organization, dedicated to preserving the Commonwealth's historic and cultural heritage. Preservation 101 is a preservation planning workshop for a regional area. The workshop is intended to inform the attendees about the purposes and administration of local preservation planning tools. Local historic district and historical commission members, planners, historians, real estate professionals and interested public from surrounding communities are encouraged to attend. The Historic District and Historic Commission Committee of Preservation Massachusetts introduces the basic concepts of preservation planning on a local level and introduces attendees to the array of organizations and agencies that make up the preservation constellation. There are many entities both large and small that can assist the local commissioner and his/her colleagues in maintaining a community’s sense of place and character. Tools that are available to the local historic preservation community, such as architectural surveys, listing on the National Register of Historic Places, demolition delay bylaws, and preservation restrictions, are discussed.

Preservation 201:
The Historic District and Historic Commission Committee of Preservation Massachusetts has developed a training module in collaboration with the Massachusetts Historical Commission entitled

Preservation 201: MHC Historic Property Forms.
The workshop is intended to inform attendees about how to complete MHC Historic Property Inventory Forms. Local historical commission and historic district members, planners, historians, members of municipal and nonprofit organizations, and the interested public from surrounding communities are encouraged to attend. The community-wide survey is a preservation planning and research tool. Completing a comprehensive inventory represents a town’s historical development by being chronologically and geographically comprehensive, and reflecting a full range of historic resource types within a community. Preservation 201 aims to meet those goals and include topics such as organizing a survey project and identifying local survey priorities, developing historic contexts, use of architectural terms in drafting property descriptions, and completing historic property inventory forms, with a focus on Form B-Building.

Preservation 301: Overview of the National Register Program
Currently under development, Preservation 301 will focus on the National Register Program and will be presented at the upcoming Statewide Historic Preservation Conference on September 20,2006 at UMass Boston. Preservation 301, Overview of the National Register Program has been developed by the Historic District/Historic Commission Committee of Preservation Massachusetts in collaboration with the Massachusetts Historical Commission. The workshop will discuss the NR program in terms of: What is the National Register of Historic Places? How do you develop a National Register Program for your community? What are the steps in listing properties in the National Register? For further information please contact: Elsa Fitzgerald, office: 978-535-5556 or ElsaFitzgerald@aol.com

50 Million Dollar Victory!
Up to $300 million in credits through 2010 will stimulate private investment in state's urban areas, preservationists say The State Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit, designed to spur the rehabilitation of historic buildings in Massachusetts received a substantial boost from the Legislature on June 15 as lawmakers voted to expand the program's funding to $50 million per year retroactively to 2005, and to extend the two year-old program through 2010. Preservationists and real estate leaders immediately hailed the decision of the joint HouseSenate conference committee as a vote of confidence in the early success of the Massachusetts Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit program. The program provides a tax credit of up to 20 percent of renovation costs as an incentive for private developers to turn older, historically significant buildings - many of them in downtown areas - into income-producing, tax-generating properties such as apartments and offices. "Many of these buildings were sitting vacant for years because the numbers to renovate them just didn't make sense," said Jim Igoe, president of Preservation Massachusetts, the nonprofit advocacy group that proposed the legislation to increase the program's funding. "The historic tax credit fills a critical gap in financing so that developers can start returning these buildings to service. This, in turn, has the potential to bring whole city sections back to life." The tax credit was launched two years ago as a five-year pilot program under a measure drafted by Preservation Massachusetts and other advocacy groups and passed by the Legis10

lature in 2003. An original funding cap of $10 million per year to disperse among approved projects was raised to $15 million by legislators last year when a high volume of applications for the credit quickly outstripped available funds. In the most recent funding round, the Massachusetts Historic Commission, which administers the program, is considering requests for an estimated $80 million in tax credits from 28 eligible projects in cities including Lowell, Lawrence, Pittsfield, Holyoke, Worcester and New Bedford. Combined, the projects represent an estimated $611 million in total investment. "This program provides economic stimulus in its truest sense," said Larry Curtis, Chairman of the Greater Boston Real Estate Board. Curtis is Managing Partner of Winn Development, which has used the credit to help finance projects in Boston and Lowell. "When you consider the number of jobs that are generated, the income produced and the state and local taxes collected from the tenants of these rehabilitated buildings, it adds up to be a wise investment and a revenue-positive return for taxpayers," he said. "We thank Senator Jack Hart and Senate President Robert Travaglini, and Representative Dan Bosley and House Speaker Sal Di Masi for their leadership on this important component of the economic stimulus package," added Igoe.
