Loring Parsonage Sudbury, MA
The Loring Parsonage was built ca. 1730 by the Rev. Mr. Israel Loring, Sudbury’s first minister. Framing evidence suggests that the first structure on the property was an early two-room house that was later encapsulated by a larger structure. The Town of Sudbury acquired the property in 1930s and uses it today for town offices.
Our firm was engaged by the Sudbury Historical Society in 2014 to provide recommendations for the rehabilitation of the historic building for use by the Society as its headquarters and museum. The study included a comprehensive assessment of existing conditions, treatment recommendations for restoration and preservation, and conceptual design for space improvements and potential expansion. The design accepted by the Society includes a new addition that evokes a 19th century carriage shed. Construction is underway with completion anticipated in summer 2018.
