PARK STREET CHURCH RECEIVES 2010 PRESERVATION AWARD FROM THE MASSACHUSETTS HISTORICAL COMMISSION


Park Street Church, in celebration of their 200th anniversary, restored the exterior and renovated the interior of their 1809 historic church building in downtown Boston.  The exterior work involved slate roofing replacement, copper work, brownstone repairs, masonry restoration and removal of redundant fire escapes.  The interior work involved creation of a street level welcome center, improved entrance facilities and extensive accessibility improvements.  A new elevator was installed that required underpinning of the foundations and relocation of intermediate floor levels.  Accessible seating was integrated into the pews of the sanctuary and accessible bathroom facilities were provided.

PARK STREET SCHOOL WINS MASSACHUSETTS HISTORIC PRESERVATION AWARD

from 6/19/2007 article by the Beacon Hill Times staff


Park Street School on Brimmer Street was recognized by the Massachusetts Historical Commission for the extensive restoration of the 1913 Colonial Revival building the school calls home. At a ceremony last Thursday at the Massachusetts Archives Building, William Francis Galvin, secretary of the Commonwealth, presented the preservation award to Park Street School Headmistress Tracy Bradley, project architects Don Mills and Craig Whitaker of Mills Whitaker Architects and project contractor Marc Truant of Marc Truant & Associates.

In 2003, responding to the expressed needs of families living in the heart of Boston, the founders of Park Street School purchased, restored and updated the former Brimmer School for children in kindergarten through grade 6. Classes began in September 2005 in the newly restored building, which incorporates state-of-the-art technology within a rich historical context. Many parents and friends living in the immediate surroundings invested significant amounts of time and money to restore the elementary school.

Park Street School also won an honorable mention in the 2006 Accessible Design Awards Program of the Massachusetts Architectural Access Board for making the historic building into a fully accessible facility.
