The Connecticut Trust announced the Town of Bolton has received a Connecticut Preservation Award for Bolton heritage Farm. The project was nominated by Sara O. Nelson, Architect – Nelson Edwards Company Architect, LLC. In the nomination, Ms. Nelson wrote: “We are writing to nominate the Town of Bolton, Connecticut for their outstanding vision, commitment and perseverance in preserving Bolton Heritage Farm (the former Valley View Farm) at 226 Bolton Center Road. This work includes carefully considered long-range planning, management and stewardship efforts to preserve a nationally important historic site, working agricultural landscape, and the vanishing cultural landscape of a New England farmstead. The Town’s unwavering commitment allowed them to triumph over the depth of adversity when an arsonist set fire to the historic barn complex one evening in May, 2015.
Receiving this award is a true honor for Bolton. So many people over the years have contributed to the preservation, stewardship and maintenance of the farm. The award is an honor bestowed to all Bolton residents.
