Ventress Hall Rehabilitation
The Seth Ventress Building was originally constructed in 1895 and has served the Town of Marshfield as a school, a library, a police station and a Town Hall. In 2010 the building was completely renovated and restored to its original grandeur while providing state of the art facilities for the Town. The second floor auditorium and grand stairway as well as the exterior of the building were painstakingly restored using old photographs and a detailed forensic investigation.
The total project cost was approximately $3.4 million, $500,000 under the approved budget. Funding was secured from Community Preservation funds.
