- Connecticut Preservation Awards 2007 Award of Merit
This project includes the complete restoration of a wonderful Richardsonian-style library constructed in 1890. In order to restore the interior, a number of ornate details were recreated including antique book stacks and hand-carved fireplace surrounds that had been destroyed and were rebuilt using photographs taken four decades earlier.
Not only did this project include a careful exterior and interior restoration, it also included designing custom furniture to match historic furniture known to be in the original building when it opened. Planning is ongoing for a future addition to expand the overall capacity of the library.
