Preservation Award Winner: 225 Compo Road South

WestportNow.com Image
The Westport Historic District Commission will honor Elizabeth Hiltz and Kevin Thomas, owners of 225 Compo Road South, at a Town Hall ceremony Saturday, Sept. 8. The commission is honoring owners of nine Westport properties for their work in rehabilitating, adapting, or preserving structures. The commissioned honored the owners of the house known as the Mary Anne Allen House c. 1892 “in recognition of the careful restoration of this wonderful Queen Anne home.” It said it is unusual “to see such a high quality effort extended to a more modest residential structure. The textured gable, graceful spindle work and wraparound porch all contribute to the historic character of this significant home. Of perhaps greatest note is the fact that the owners chose to preserve the original scale of the building. As a result, it has a remarkable feeling of authenticity.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Moisture, Mold Found in King’s Highway Gym Walls

UPDATE The special committee investigating air quality at Westport’s King’s Highway Elementary School was told today that moisture and mold have been found behind the gymnasium walls.

“We’re facing remediation,” said Gavin Anderson, committee chair, adding that remediation efforts will begin next week.

Timing is critical, Anderson told a Town Hall meeting, because he wants to be able to give the school board by Wednesday a recommendation on whether to open the school on schedule Aug. 27.

Assistant Superintendent Nancy Harris, a member of the committee appointed July 30 by First Selectman Gordon Joseloff, said a Norwalk firm has already been contacted and is scheduled to carry out the remediation work over three days next week.

The Westport Historic District Commission will honor Rondi Charleston and Steven Ruchefsky, owners of the house at 3 Evergreen Ave., known as the Jauncey-Coley House c. 1835, at a Town Hall ceremony Sept. 8.
