Firehouse Place


The building that once served as the Town of Hamilton's fire station, now named Firehouse Place, is the Town's first Community Preservation Fund supported affordable housing project.   Following three years of planning and five months of construction that included  extensive building renovations and improvements this  building, upon completion,  now consists four affordable rental units: a new handicapped-accessible one bedroom apartment for a disabled elderly person on the first, and three additional studio apartments on the second floor.


In addition, Firehouse Place successfully preserves the Acord's home for many years to come and  serves as a great example of using local Community Preservation funds to leverage regional and statewide resources for contextually appropriate affordable housing.
