Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation Built Environment Award Trackside at Dana House Teen Center
Rob Sanders was presented with an award for the restoration and adaptive reuse of the Davenport-Dana House in Wilton, which is now Trackside at Dana House Teen Center.
Presenting the award to Mr. Sanders, Executive Director Helen Higgins said, “The old Davenport-Dana homestead, dating from the 1760’s and threatened with demolition in the 1990’s, has been reborn as a Teen Center in Wilton. The town of Wilton purchased the building in the late 1990’s. Sanders’ adaptive reuse design envisioned an old New England farmstead growing in typical fashion with converted barns and outbuildings. The result is a building that fits the historic center of Wilton while fulfilling a significant social need — that of giving teens a place to hang out as well as have positive experiences.”
