The Northborough Project

Dec 22, 2020 · 1 Minute Read

A few years ago a woman contacted me about photo documenting her family home in Northborough, MA. The large property was going to be sub-divided and she wanted this dwelling to be protected and wanted the Mass Historical Commission to create an easement and the MHC would stay in charge of this into the future.

She insisted on large format photography and advised me of what the MHC needed me to do. I was quite proud when I heard that Michael Steinitz, the Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer and Preservation Planning Director said at the end of the hearing that the committee usually travels to the site sometime after the hearing to view the property but in this case, with the photogrphs they were presented, there was no need to go. Everything they needed was in front of them.
