- North Clarendon Chapel
North Clarendon Chapel has received a Robert Sincerbeaux Fund (RSF) Condition Assessment Grant managed by the Preservation Trust of Vermont.
RSF grants are used to hire a preservation contractor or architect to evaluate the condition of a historic building and make recommendations for its care. The consultant will prepare a report that prioritizes repairs and gives rough cost estimates so the Friends of the North Clarendon Chapel can plan fundraising strategies.
Preservation Advisor, Peter Coppola, and architect Tom Keefe from the firm ‘Keefe and Wesner’ will be conducting an assessment of the building to see if it can be restored for community activities in the future. Read more.
- Barn Census
Efforts are expanded to start a Barn Census with the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation and Devin A. Colman | State Architectural Historian. The Barn Census Committee had its first meeting in September. The next steps are to identify which Barn would qualify, send a letter to owners and find more volunteers to assist in conducting the Census. If you are interested in volunteering contact Clarendon Heritage. If you are the owner of a barn and wish to have your barn included in the census please contact us. A folder is also available at the Bailey Library for consultation. Read more
