Restoration of the Original Berkshire County Courthouse

June 15, 2015

New County Courthouse

After a long year of hard work, the restoration of the Berkshire County Courthouse is almost complete.  With the exception of a few minor exterior touchups, the substantial phases of the renovation are finished: the second floor apartments, the storefronts on the first floor, and building envelope.

The restoration officially began on July 30, 2014. Our goal was to preserve the building's original style and allow it to continue serving its commercial-residential function; commercial retail is located on the first floor and residential units are located on the second floor. The building’s structure is comprised of a post and beam timber frame, which adds historic flair to the residential units

The building is one of the town's historically significant sites, built in 1791 on Main Street to house the Berkshire County Courthouse after Lenox became a shire town.  Now, it sits at 27 Housatonic Street in Lenox, MA where it will hold a new site for the town’s historic district.

Originally built in 1888 as the Berkshire County Home for Aged Women, the design entailed restoring and replicating prominent historic details, which pay homage to the Richardsonian Romanesque architecture, while incorporating a new transitional style that boasts the comforts of multifamily living in the modern age.  The program houses 18 residential units along with shared amenities including dining cafe, reading and fitness and educational uses.

We are all MAKERS with the power to build resilient communities.

Our team had a wonderful time participating in Yo-Yo Ma’s “Day of Action”, where teams of local businesses and organizations united under a single tent to build tables for the community.  The tables are made from local ash trees and inscribed with local responses that complete the phrase “The Berkshires make...”. #yoyoma #dayofaction #community #intheberkshires
