From the Connecticut State Historic Preservation webpage:
“The State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) is responsible for overseeing the governmental program of historic preservation for Connecticut’s citizens. …The State Historic Preservation Office was … moved in 2011 into the Department of Economic and Community Development providing new opportunities for collaboration on restoration and community revitalization. SHPO administers a range of federal and state programs that identify, register and protect the buildings, sites, structures, districts and objects that comprise Connecticut’s cultural heritage.”As architects, we are interested in preserving history and culture through buildings, integrating the past into the present. Conserving historic buildings helps create a rich legacy for future generations. We are knowledgeable of and sensitive to issues regarding historic preservation of the built environment.
