As she walked into the old, but new again building on First Street between Fenn and Federal, Holly Stover-Howard had much to say about what she remembered about the old Howard building and marveled at the new and restored one. She told the stories of her childhood – running down the hallways and up the old staircases, counting inventory of nails and screws from the first floor to the third, she brought us back to another time and place.

Pouring the foundation.
The new future home for Gracious Retirement Living & Healthcare Services.
Exciting things have begun over at 270 South Main Street in Pittsfield. A vast clearing has been created and a strong foundation has been started. This centrally located site will be the new home of Berkshire Place’s newest facility, a much welcome addition to aid in the growing need for senior living. This facility will be centered on skilled nursing and superior health-care, while in a warm home-like environment.
Miles from any town or city, in the western countryside of Spain, a beautiful old stable now lives as a gorgeous home, which perfectly melds an old stone exterior with a fresh and modern living space.

Constructed in 1916 in the Classical Revival Style, which was typical for the era, The Howard Building was originally constructed to house a hardware and agricultural implement business which catered to the surrounding farms and the great estates of the rural Berkshires. The Howard, a popular Pittsfield staple, sold tools, dairy & poultry supplies as well as other important farming implements. But it was best known as a seed company, annually producing a seed catalogue, which it published through 1960 issuing 10,000 copies that year alone. It is on the National Register of Historic Places.
In 2010, The Howard Building was purchased by Allegrone Construction as a Historic Redevelopment project. It is fast becoming one of the most exciting and transformative real estate projects in Downtown Pittsfield. So, you can imagine our delight when Holly Stover the granddaughter of Frank Howard, contacted us with the original plans.
