t is with great pleasure that I write my first message as this
year’s president of the New Bedford Preservation Society.
I am fortunate to lead an engaged board of directors, many of
whom have faithfully served the society for a decade or more. I
truly believe that "Our History is Our Future." That being said, I
have two specific goals in mind that I hope to accomplish during
my tenure as president.
My vision for the organization includes expanding our board of
directors to include a representative from each of our historic
districts and from various segments of the private and business
sectors that have a passion for preservation and a vision to
continue the mission of the New Bedford Preservation Society.
The mission began in 1974, when a small group of passionate and
determined young people banded together to try to halt a state
plan to widen New Bedford’s premier residential avenue and
destroy the tall old elm trees that had arched over that street for
decades. That small group shared in our belief that New Bedford is
"a grand old city and in need of saving." The society has grown
into an organization whose ongoing efforts include a Re-Leaf
program, architectural walking tour brochures, summer walking
tours, semi-annual house tours, a historic marker program, and
other efforts, all of which highlight the significance of this city’s
incredible architecture, its diverse neighborhoods and extol the
pride of owning a piece of New Bedford’s history.

for restoration projects; and with the necessary education
and guidance to help them choose RESTORATION over
renovation. Our consulting group will include local
knowledgeable, preservation-minded architects, contractors,
tradesmen, etc., in addition to board members, volunteers
and historians. It is my objective that the New Bedford
Preservation Society in a joint effort with WHALE and the
New Bedford Historical Society hold at least one symposium
in the coming year at which we can share our expertise with
homeowners of historic properties.
As the society encourages the city’s historic homeowners to
“practice preservation,‖ we want to bring to an end the idea
that historic preservation is for the elite and affluent alone. It
can be (and is) practiced, achieved and enjoyed by people of
all economic backgrounds. Whether a modest Federal or
Greek Revival owned by a mill worker or a twenty-room
Queen Anne or Italianate built for a whaling captain, each
one of New Bedford’s old homes and its owners shared
equally in helping to shape our city’s rich history.

The New Bedford Preservation Society strives to educate the
community on the importance of historic preservation. It is my
goal to continue that education process by forming a group of

assistance in researching the history of their property; with options

hroughout the city of New Bedford, neighborhoods
are as much defined by the architecture of the houses
that line the streets as
they are by the people
who call them home. When a
neighborhood loses a house, it can
alter more than just the streetscape.
It can upset the psyche of those
that reside there. One house can
change a neighborhood. The
recent loss of One Washington
Square is a fresh example of how
the hopes, image and ambition of a
neighborhood can alter
dramatically in the course of 24
hours. There is still a lingering
sense that work can and will be
done to help this particular neighborhood rise up again from neglect
that has forsaken it over the past several years.
Yet, there is still a sense that many homes and buildings can
be saved. All it takes is someone with the vision who would
come along and willingly spend the
time, effort and money.
A different example of change and probable loss can be found in the
West End, where one historic home out of a block of six important
homes designed by noted architect Nat Canon Smith has slowly
fallen victim to willful neglect. A former shingle style beauty has
become a derelict shadowy hulk, hidden behind wildly overgrown
shrubs. We watch helplessly as the glass falls out of the windows and
the shingles, gutters and trim rot and fall to litter the ground below.
Meanwhile carpenter ants or termites eat their way up from the sills
causing the house to sag morosely. It is clear that this house is
quickly slipping past the point of no return.
It is my hope that one day Washington Square will again
shine, that my neighbor’s house will glow with life and that
perhaps the Orpheum Theater will again be a magnet for arts
and culture. A pipe dream? No, I do not believe so. After
all, it only takes one house to change a neighborhood…for
the better.
The reality, of course, is that in this city, from the far North to the
South End, one can find countless numbers of homes and buildings
left abandoned or ignored. As each year passes, we will continue to
lose one or two to fire, neglect and demolition. Others will be
purchased and renovated without a single thought to preserving the
character or soul of the house. The old windows reflecting back
grace replaced with mundane vinyl-clad, one-over-ones, vinyl siding
and aluminum porch columns covering wood and brick. For me, it
is almost worse than losing them permanently from the street.
Fortunately in the city of New
Bedford, there are many who share
this vision and are able to see beyond
debris and decay. It is my hope that
the future of New Bedford is in the
hands of those who see the
possibility and beauty in the past and
can carry it forward. I know it will
take the concerted effort and support
of many, acting either through the
work of organizations or as
individuals who believe in the virtues
of preservation and restoration.

hile on vacation over the Christmas holiday, I
came across a magnificent artifact of New
past – a
stage coach! At The Long
Island Museum of Art,
History & Carriages in Stony
Brook, New York, there is on
display a beautiful ―Concord‖
stage coach which is
emblazoned ―Mattapoisett
and New Bedford, C.E.
Fuller.” The coach, straight
out of what we all remember
from watching endless
westerns on television and at
the movies, has been wonderfully preserved and appears in
outstanding condition.
Coach lines were an important mode of passenger, freight and
mail conveyance before the advent of railroads. New Bedford’s
first coach service was established in the 1790s to provide travel
to Boston. Other routes to Newport, Fall River, Wareham and
Plymouth were also established. The route to Newport was
particularly important in the early 1800s because of its regular
schedule of seagoing vessels, including steamships to New York.
Even as rail lines snaked their way through most towns, coach
service provided an alternative, local schedule of passenger and
freight transport. This local line to Mattapoisett was a
proprietorship of one man, Charles E. Fuller, who was also a
resident of that town. He probably acquired the rights to the line
circa 1880 and continued to operate the stage until just after the
turn of the century. He initially posted his schedule or ―slate‖ on
North Second Street but for most of its existence this stage
stopped on Purchase Street.
The Fuller ―Concord,” built between 1870 and 1880, is an
excellent example of the vehicle which truly helped open the
West. Made and engineered to travel over the worst terrain, these

stage coaches were produced by the Abbot-Downing Company
of Concord, New Hampshire, and were shipped by rail

Co. in South Bend, Indiana. The ―Concord,” however, was the

In addition to the New Bedford stage coach, The Long Island
Museum of Art, History and Carriages has an impressive
permanent collection of horse-drawn carriages, carts, sleighs and
fire engines. It’s worth a visit to the quaint, historic, university
