THS Awarded Preservation Trust of VT Grants

THS Awarded Preservation Trust of VT Grants

Townshend Historical Society has received six $250 Robert Sincerbeaux Fund matching grants totaling $1,500, one for each of Townshend’s six surviving stone arch bridges. The grants will help pay to hire professional stonemason Michael Weitzner of Thistle Stone Works in Brattleboro to assess the bridges’ current conditions. They were built between 1894 and 1910 by Robert Follett.

 Weitzner’s final report will list needed repairs, suggestions for how to make them, and give an estimate of costs. THS will use his report as the basis for drawing up a plan to preserve the bridges, which are a historically significant links to Townshend’s history.

 As the grants require a 1:1 cash match from THS, it has started raising funds by selling Stone Arch Bridge jigsaw puzzles and color prints by local artist Aldro Hibbard. You can see these on the this website’s Store, on its Facebook page, and at local shops and galleries.
