HISTORIC PRESERVATION

In mid-career Dean initiated and completed numerous Historic Preservation projects, including exterior restorations to the West Acton Citizens’ Library, the Windsor Building, the Acton Memorial Library, and the Town Hall.  After retirement he completed a historic restoration of the two hundred year old barn on the last portion of the Charter Farm, as he feels property owners have a moral obligation to preserve privately owned historic resources, just as the Town has a moral obligation to preserve publicly owned historic resources. 


As a member of the Community Preservation Committee since 2016, Dean has supported taxpayer funding for Historic Preservation projects conducted on properties owned by the public and the non-profit sector.
