Protecting the Birthplace of the American Revolution,

the cradle of the Environmental Movement,

and the Home of the American Literary Renaissance

The Restoration Project

The goal of this project is to restore the existing Col. James Barrett house so that it can be safely and appropriately visited by the general public.  Its key period of significance is the American Revolution along with changes brought about in the early 19th century.

The (updated) Historic Structures Report of April 2009 gives details of the house and family over a 300 year period.  Note:  these are large pdf files (see side box).  The appendices contain copies of original documents and books.
