Preservation Officials Tour Berkshire Courthouse Restoration

Probate Court

Michael Mucci of Allegrone meets with members of the Western Massachusetts Historical Commission Coalition to review the project.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The $2.8 million ongoing construction at the Berkshire Family & Probate Court is painstakingly preserving and restoring the landmark Park Square structure as near as possible to its original appearance, according to builders on the job.

"When we're all done, this building is going to look a lot more like it did in 1876," Allegrone Construction's Michael Mucci said of the historic former Berkshire Athenaeum building that today houses the courts and Berkshire Middle Registry of Deeds.  

Allegrone reported it is using "almost no new stone," instead patching and binding together broken existing wall stone with careful masonry as they rebuild the deconstructed facade.  A new steel structure extending from the basement to the second story was erected to hold the rebuilt stonework from within.
