Browne House roof replacement begins

Browne Roof Replacement
Removal of wood shingles on the Browne House roof marks the beginning of the roof replacement project this spring.


Historic New England has begun a roof replacement project at Browne House in Watertown, Massachusetts. The project includes the removal and replacement of wood shingles, repairs to rafters, re-pointing chimneys, and the installation of new gutters and downspouts. Learn more about Historic New England's approach to roofing projects in our white papers.  

This work was funded in part by a grant from the Massachusetts Historical Commission’s Massachusetts Preservation Project Fund and through Historic New England’s Preservation Maintenance Fund. Please support essential preservation projects at our historic sites by donating to the Preservation Maintenance Fund.
