First Congregational Church 

Amherst, MA

 

Peter Turowski, AIA while with Margo Jones Architects

Completed: 2002

 

A three phased project to an historic church across from the Emily Dickinson Estate in Amherst town center. The project included application for a Massachusetts Preservation Project Fund (MPPF) grant, and three subsequent phases including: 1) steeple re-roofing and repair (including wood louver replication and finial repair), 2) slate roofing and copper flashing repair and replacement on main sanctuary, and 3) a new front porch and accessible ramp. The latter project replaced a late ramp addition with a new earthen ramp, and earlier modification to the porch roof with a new roof configuration designed from study of historic photographs.
