Living History: Preserving, Rehabilitating And Reusing Historic Properties In Connecticut

Unlock the hidden stories within historic properties – a journey of preserving and reimagining the past for a vibrant future. For over 25 years, I have assisted individuals, organizations and associations throughout Connecticut for preservation and conservation of buildings and sites of local, regional and national historic importance.

Preserving Legacy – Reimagining Spaces

In my legal career, I’ve collaborated with fellow attorneys to tackle challenges surrounding properties listed on or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. Often faced with demolition permits, property owners seek to tear down these structures under the guise of disrepair. My investigation reveals a different narrative – the building often stands strong, awaiting a revival through rehabilitation and adaptive reuse that is both profitable and supports the environment.

A Transformation: Rehabilitation, Reuse And Preservation

Buildings and sites of local, regional or national significance are often left to disrepair, deterioration, “demolition by neglect” and willful destruction.  Rather than remain eyesores or hazards, such buildings can be repaired, rehabilitated and put to adaptive and new uses. Examples of many such buildings are throughout Connecticut. I am proud to have participated in such projects and in the transformative journeys of the buildings and sites.
