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 qfqpz contractor, David J. Tierney, Jr. Inc.”
