Saratoga Springs City Center
BalsFor owners of historic homes, the Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation is highlighting home restoration services by sponsoring the Rotary Home and Garden Show’s first ever Preservation and Restoration section. Local builders, architects, landscape architects, stone quarriers, flooring specialists and painters are available from five local businesses to discuss plans for your historic home.
“We’re thrilled to have the experts at the Preservation Foundation coordinating this special section to help people preserve and enhance historic residences,” notes Rotary Home Show chairman Chuck Martin. “Rotary likes to collaborate with community organizations, and we thank these exhibitors and the Preservation Foundation for creating this unique aspect of this year’s show.”

Their recent additions to a historic home in Saratoga Springs enhanced the residence’s desirable east lawn and created a large interior space for the family to formally gather. The firm was sympathetic to the existing materials and details of this Queen Anne style home. Great effort was used in the material selection, including the use of reclaimed stone for the addition’s exposed foundation wall, which was acquired from a demolished church in Vermont.
