DCR’s $50k will match the $25k that the City of Cambridge allocated in September 2011. This money will be spent to commission an historical structure report to guide restoration and interpretative efforts and to begin to fix the roof. Patrice Kish, DCR’s Director of Cultural Resourcees, will oversee the project in partnership with the Cambridgeport Neighborhood Association and the Cambridge Historical Commission.
