Printer-Friendly View


The Commission is responsible for the:
  • protection and preservation of the Groton Center Historic District
Members review, for appropriateness, all applications for building and renovation in the District.  Jurisdiction includes any change in a façade which can be seen from the District.

The District was formed in 1964 as a result of a change to the historic character of Groton Center: a beautiful old building (the old hospital) on Main Street was demolished and replaced by a supermarket. The District was enlarged in 1965.

The five members and two alternates are chosen as follows: an architect from among two nominated by the Massachusetts Chapter of the American Society of Architects and the Boston Society of Landscape Architects; two nominated by the Historical Society; a resident of the District; and three additional members without designation.
