Grant: HISTORIC RESTORATION FUND (HRF) Connecticut Commission on Culture & TourismAvon Old Farms School was constructed in the 1920s to the designs of Theodate Pope Riddle, Connecticut’s first female licensed architect.The School is listed on the Connecticut State Register of Historic Places.In organizing the construction of her school Theodate Pope Riddle impor ted master craftsmen from the Cotswold region of England to serveas project foremen. They in turn trained and super vised the over 500 workmen who labored on site to create the school buildings. Thecraftsmen constructed the campus buildings of local materials using late 16th-century construction techniques.The forge building was one of the first buildings constructed in an assemblage of structures that included the forge, and adjacent water tower, carpentershop and wheelwright shop. This complex of buildings served a dual purpose as a “mock-up” of the techniques, and aesthetic style for the entirecampus and served as the fabrication center for all of the materials used on site. Over time Powder post beetles and water infiltration have causedsignificant deterioration of the forge’s timber framing and the roof has dropped several inches and pulled away from one of the chimney stacks.The highly usual construction of the School buildings – atypical for the United States – required careful and deliberate testing of methodologiesThe School viewed of the restoration of the forge as the first step in the sequential repair of the existing slate roofs and masonry walls of theentire historic campus.NELSON EDWARDS COMPANY ARCHITECTS LLC 1156 MAIN STREET BRANFORD, CONNECTICUT 203.481.6611

Structural Engineer: GNCB CONSULTING ENGINEERS, P.C.The Abijah Pardee House (as shown on a 1868 Beers County Atlas Map, above) and proper ty at 324 Townsend Avenue in NewHaven was acquired by the Board of Park Commissioners in 2003 to expand the boundaries of the Pardee Seawall Park. Thehouse was extensively renovated in the late 19th and early 20th-centuries and had lost much of its 18th-century appearancewhen viewed from the street. The City of New Haven recogized that although the city was one of the first areas of Englishsettlement in Connecticut, the city did not have a great number of early houses remaining. It is for this reason that we werecommissioned to write a Historic Structures Repor t to document the history and the physical condition of the house, andto develop a long term preservation plan.The historic structures repor t described extensive and immediate repair work required to stabilize the building. The citycompleted this work to buy time to raise additional funds for building restoration and to develop a program for future use.NELSON EDWARDS COMPANY ARCHITECTS LLC 1156 MAIN STREET BRANFORD, CONNECTICUT 203.481.6611
