Town Starts Restoring Historic Jefferson Cutter House

  

A $65,000 grant from the Massachusetts Historic Commission is helping Arlington’s Department of Planning & Community Development and Dallin Museum to restore the exterior of the Jefferson Cutter House at 611 Massachusetts Avenue. Set amidst Whittemore Park in Arlington Center, this historic property houses the Dallin Museum, Chamber of Commerce and the Cutter Gallery. The Aulson Company, noted preservation contractors, is restoring windows, installing a new shingle roof, repairing deteriorated clapboards and sills, repairing damaged gutters and repointing parts of the stone foundation. The Town’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is also providing funding for this project. Arlington’s recently adopted Master Plan calls for protecting the town’s historic legacy by implementing restoration work such as the Cutter House project.
