Archiving Significant Historic Structures For Dismantling

rr06William Gould, of Pomfret Center, Connecticut, a preservationist who specializes in relocating period buildings, notifies the state archaeologist of every significant historic structure he dismantles. The archaeologist records and documents the original site and develops an archival report. There is no charge to the owner. No building recreation is ever truly successful in bringing the original back, no matter how respectful, loving and sensitive it is to the original. Something is forever lost and William Gould believes that the owners have a social obligation to honor and document that loss just as they are obliged to document the new structure, obtain permits and conform to code.
