FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - May 12, 2012 - May 7, 2012 (Stockbridge, MA) The Red Lion Inn was recently honored by Preservation Massachusetts for it’s 2006 renovation of the South Wing of the Inn at the 2012 Paul E. Tsongas Awards Dinner at Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston. This year was the 25th anniversary dinner, and the 10th anniversary of the conception of the Massachusetts Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit (MHRTC) program.  The Tsongas Award is given to those projects that have successfully used the MHRTC program to revitalize communities, spur investment, create jobs and enhance quality of life both locally and throughout the Commonwealth.

Across Massachusetts, 31 projects and their development teams received the Paul E. Tsongas Award, Preservation Massachusetts’ highest honor, named in memory of the late United States Senator.  The award recognizes those projects that exemplify the mission to preserve our Commonwealth’s past for the benefit of the future.  

President of Preservation Massachusetts, Jim Igoe, said, “The Red Lion Inn is one of the most well known historic inns in all of Massachusetts, if not the entire country. Its continual presence and popularity as a Stockbridge destination shows how historic preservation benefits our communities, both large and small. Their use of the Massachusetts Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit demonstrates how the program can successfully be used for ‘main street’ projects.”

The Fitzpatrick Family previously received the award in 1999 for their dedication to preservation projects in Stockbridge.  “Preservation is a critical factor in the core values of our business,” said The Red Lion Inn’s General Manager, Bruce Finn.  “The success of our renovation project would not have happened without a collaborative team effort from the ownership of The Red Lion Inn, the vision and guidance of our architects, Einhorn Yaffee Prescott, and the general contractor, David J. Tierney, Jr. Inc.”
