Article 46 - The Aaron and Lucy Claflin House Historic District (76 Main St)

contribute's picture

On May 1, 2019 the Hopkinton Historic District Commission (HHDC) held a public hearing on the Preliminary Study Report for the creation of the Aaron and Lucy Claflin House Historic District (76 Main St), which is the subject of a Town Meeting Warrant Article (Article #46) submitted by the Hopkinton Historical Commission (HHC). The current property owner sought a demolition permit for the Claflin House; the Hopkinton Historical Commission then imposed a six-month demolition delay, which will expire July 4, 2019. The Hopkinton Historic District Commission, which oversees the existing Hopkinton Center Historic District half a mile east of the subject property, is seeking to establish the Aaron and Lucy Claflin House Historic District before the demolition delay expires. The Preliminary Study Report was prepared by a historic preservation consultant and submitted to the Massachusetts Historical Commission (MHC) and the Hopkinton Planning Board on March 1, 2019. After receiving public feedback, an advisory recommendation from MHC and holding a Public Hearing on May 1, the Final Study Report is now ready to be submitted to Town Meeting. As always, please feel free to contact the Commissions with any questions at: [email protected] and [email protected].
