P. Preservationist
 Dedicated to the Enrichment & Preservation of Newburyport“Anyone who has lived elsewhere can tell you that this is a special place. We need to protect and champion what we have – the land, the history, the human community.”                                                               – Brian R. Kologe

I meet homeowners who are committed to maintaining the historic     details of their homes during renovations I am always appreciative; in fact, I consider these homeowners stewards of the rich history of Newburyport.”

“I think anyone who came in today to develop land, like the     waterfront, would want to adhere to those requirements,

People come to Newburyport to be attracted by the historicity of the community… we want to continue that.”

“Renovators had rules to follow when rebuilding”,
Newburyport Daily News


Newburyport became a dynamic show place. My architectural practice on Inn Street thrived because we had the benefit of restoring one of the    first buildings and we showed that restoration made sense.”
