Update on efforts to save the Cogshell Robinson House
We are grateful to the many people who signed our petition to help save the house from demolition. Our effort is now getting support from the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) and the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation. These two organizations are now actively engaged in helping to save this important Federal style structure as an integral part of the National Registered Village District in Colchester.
If you want to continue to help save this house from demolition, please write a letter of support to: The State Historic Preservation Office, Attention Todd Levine, 450 Columbus Boulevard, Suite 5, Hartford, CT 06103. A hearing in front of the Historic Preservation Council will be held in early September to determine the fate of the house. Your letter to SHPO can make a difference. Thank you.
Preserving history is more than buildings and places
