Restoration of the Original Berkshire County Courthouse

New County Courthouse

After a long year of hard work, the restoration of the Berkshire County Courthouse is almost complete.  With the exception of a few minor exterior touchups, the substantial phases of the renovation are finished: the second floor apartments, the storefronts on the first floor, and building envelope.

State-of-the-art Berkshire Place Ready for New Patients

Berkshire Place

PITTSFIELD >> Carmella Scelsi hopes to find the new Berkshire Place as welcoming as the century-old one she's called home the past four years.

On Wednesday, Scesli will be among the dozens of current long-term residents moving from the original skilled nursing facility at 89 South St. to the more spacious, state-of-the art, $10 million complex a half mile away at 260 South St.

The project's general contractor, Allegrone Construction Co. of Pittsfield, employed a number of local subcontractors, putting 100 skilled laborers to work. Project superintendent Rob Rosier, who led the tour, said the goal was to ensure Berkshire Place belonged in its new neighborhood.

"The building was designed to fit well with the contour of the land," he said.

LENOX -- From the outside, the rather nondescript commercial building at 27 Housatonic St. looks like it has seen better days.

It's one of the town's historically significant sites, built in 1791 on Main Street to house the Berkshire County Courthouse after Lenox became a shire town and the new county seat, formerly in Sheffield and Great Barrington.

In 1815, as the much larger Greek Revival courthouse was completed (home to the Lenox Library starting in 1876), the old site became the Town House, used as the post office and for local government.

In 1903, the building was removed from its foundation and moved by horse and wagon to its present location following the opening of the new Town Hall next door.

Now among the three oldest buildings still standing in the historic downtown village, it is owned by real estate entrepreneur Steve Oakes, who's embarking on a major rehabilitation project this fall to shore it up, saving it from further sagging of the facade, while giving it a look more in keeping with its deep roots in the town's early history.
