In partnership with the City of Worcester, Seven Hills Foundation, Nitsche Engineering, Lamoureux Pagano Architects, CD McGuire and others, we plan to move the historic Stearns Tavern to Coes Pond. Preservation Worcester committed to paying expenses (heat, water, electricity, snow removal, lawn care, fire monitoring ….) for the building for the next 7 months. Being a small grassroots organization, this commitment is a real stretch for us. We figure our expenses will be $25 per day. PLEASE HELP US SUPPORT THE PROJECT AND PAY FOR A DAY, A COUPLE OF DAYS A WEEK OR WHATEVER WORKS WITHIN YOUR BUDGET.

Preservation Worcester celebrates the 20th anniversary of our annual Most Endangered Structures List. The list has proven to be a highly successful tool for identifying and selecting local architectural gems that are threatened by demolition, neglect or inappropriate use. To highlight the effectiveness of the program, this year in addition to selecting 10 endangered structures, we also identified 20 successes. Go to our Most Endangered Structures tab to see our complete list of threatened properties as well as our commendations list. Also, please nominate threatened properties for our 2016 Most Endangered Structures List.
This photograph was taken on October 9, 2015 and is the most recent photo we have that shows the progress in stonework being done on the Clock Tower. We are excited as the work nears completion and will keep you posted as to when it is done.
