Friends of Cooley Dickinson, Historical Commission to Host Tour of Award-winning Homes

NORTHAMPTON — On Saturday, June 29 from noon to 4 p.m., six award-winning historic-preservation homes will be open to the public. Tickets are necessary for admission and are available at the Cooley Dickinson Hospital Gift Shop, Cooper’s Corner, State Street Fruit Store, and downtown at Essentials and the Baker’s Pin. Tickets cost $25, and will also be available the day of the event at the CDH Gift Shop.

Friends of Cooley Dickinson is a group of volunteers dedicated to supporting the hospital through fundraising, advocacy, and ambassadorship. Its goal is to make a difference in the health of the community. The Northampton Historical Commission has been designating historic-preservation awards since 1975, recognizing projects that have contributed to the historic character of the city of Northampton and raised awareness about the importance of historic preservation.

The collaborative event includes a tour of the following homes: 41 Lyman Road (award year: 2007), 30 Munroe St. (1996), 302 Elm St. (2018), 78 North Elm St. (2000), 62 Chestnut St. (2003), and 123 Meadow St. (2002).
