Our Future Restoration Work

Restoration Committee Contracts with Spencer & Vogt Architects.

spencer-vogt-drawing

Spencer & Vogt Architects is a well-known and well- respected Boston area architectural firm that specializes in restoration and preservation of historic properties. Some of their many projects include Ames Chapel in Hingham, Emmanuel Church in Boston, First Church in Lancaster, First Church of Salem, and First Parish of Wayland.

 
In our work with principle architect, Lynne Spencer, we are focusing on the East-facing facade where there is the most concern.

 
With the formation of the Friends non-profit, the Restoration Committee will continue to work with Lynne Spencer and her firm in developing the projects that we can afford to take on. Needless to say, while some grants may be available, our success will depend largely on individual donations to the Friends from those of you who value the restoration and preservation of this iconic structure.
