Restoration of the Pittsfield Probate Courthouse, the historic James A. Bowes Building has begun. Set in the middle of park square, this collaboration with the Massachusetts Division of Capital Asset Management will bring the long overdue façade of the Athenaeum back to life. Restorations will including the careful cleaning of the stone façade, which will involve dismantling much of the stone work. This process is done by marking each stone for placement and then reassembling it over a 12-month period. Other exterior and interior features of the structure will also be restored.
