DUE HONOR

A complete exterior restoration and nomination to the National Register of Historic Places give this locally significant property the recognition it deserves.

 

Historically known as the “Williams House,” this c.1800 gem was once part of a locally prominent farm in New Fairfield, CT. The building’s architectural elements had been covered by a layer of vinyl, obscuring the transitional quality illustrated by both Federal and Greek Revival details. With the help of HVP, the current homeowners began a phased exterior restoration. Intact wooden clapboards were discovered underneath the vinyl siding, and paint profiles were used to recreate the original window trim. The historic window sashes were repaired and supplemented with invisible storm windows, and damaged elements were either repaired or replaced using in-kind materials. The homeowners also elected to have HVP complete State and National Register Nominations. Both have since been approved and the Williams House now carries the honorific designation of dual listings.
