Akin House Restoration Phase III has begun in earnest
In 2015, DHPT was awarded Dartmouth Community Preservation Act (CPA) funds for Phase III restoration at our 1762 Akin House at 762 Dartmouth Street. We recently hired preservation contractor, Tom Figueiredo, of Marion, to do this important job. Tom has been working non-stop on site since August 7, 2017. We are pleased and fortunate to have Tom as our partner in preservation. His services and expertise was well worth the wait while he was working on another CPA restoration project in Mattapoisett, MA.
