ANNUAL REPORT

Fiscal Year 2019 (April 1, 2018-March 31, 2019)


WELCOME

In a year of new ventures—and a few adventures—Historic New England expanded its engagement with audiences in some exciting ways. We implemented a new membership structure that provides for more levels of support for the mission and work of Historic New England. In the spirit of the community cooperation that got barns built in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, we came together at Raise the Roof last October, a party to support roof repair projects at ten historic sites in Massachuse!s, New Hampshire, and Maine. This successful event at the Lyman Estate in Waltham, Massachuse!s, was our special take on the country fair concept. Generous donors, some of whom signed roof shingles that were installed during the summer at Boardman House in Saugus, Massachuse!s, helped the event surpass its fundraising goal. Our Compass Rose Steampunk Festival introduced Historic New England to the pop culture movement of steampunk, a subgenre of science fiction/fantasy with a Victorian-era backdrop featuring contemporary and futuristic touches. Roseland Co!age in Woodstock, Connecticut, provided the perfect se!ing for the gathering, which a!racted a large young audience. The festival is on track to be an annual staple of the events Historic New England offers to the public, much like Feast for the Farms at Casey Farm in Saunderstown, Rhode Island. In summer 2018 we held our fi#h celebration of that farm-to-table evening of dining, which also benefits Watson Farm in nearby Jamestown. Our organization continues to garner awards and other honors. At its fortieth annual preservation awards ceremony, the Massachuse!s Historical Commission presented Historic New England an award for education and outreach, rehabilitation, and restoration work at the Eustis Estate in Milton. For our commitment to preservation, the Portsmouth (New Hampshire) Advocates gave Historic New England a preservation award for restoration of the c. 1664 Jackson House. FoMA, the Friends of Modern Architecture/Lincoln (Massachuse!s), gave the organization its annual award for excellence in preservation of Modern architecture and praised Historic New England’s stewardship of Gropius House. That recognition came during the centennial of the Bauhaus, the design school Walter Gropius founded in his native Germany. We are engaged in stewardship and preservation efforts that uphold our institutional mandate of se!ing the standard for care and use of historic resources. With increasing global concerns about climate change, Historic New England joined with Middlebury College in Vermont to launch a two-year internship project to study our approaches to climate change resiliency and preparedness. One of the goals of this internship is to develop strategies to address projected climate threats. In another new endeavor, we offered a professional development fellowship in architectural conservation and preservation carpentry with partial funding by the Americana Foundation. The program trains a new generation in traditional building practices, helping to ensure that knowledgeable and skilled practitioners will be available to care for historic resources in the future. Historic New England shares tremendous benefits with organizations by forming partnerships to offer a variety of public programs, events, and services. Hosting community-generated exhibitions are among these efforts. Historic New England was pleased to collaborate with the Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire to exhibit works by artist Richard Haynes of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. As artist-in-residence at Langdon House during the summer of 2018, Haynes created a portrait of historical figure Cyrus Bruce. The painting is now in Historic New England’s collection. In a special act of sharing with the community, we collaborated with Hope’s Harvest RI, a startup that conducts gleaning operations. Gleaning, a historical practice, is the collection of unharvested or unmarketable produce that would otherwise go to waste. Instead, the food is salvaged for those in need. Volunteers with Hope’s Harvest RI worked at Casey Farm to gather produce from the spent fields for distribution through local food hub Farm Fresh RI. We are delighted to share some of the successes of the past year with you. Thanks to your generous and continued support, we are assured that our future will be filled with history.
