What IWF Was Up To During the Covid Closure

Throughout 2020 while our historic properties were closed due to Covid restrictions we were very industrious!
A major project was the continued restoration of windows at Jones Tavern and the Faulkner Homestead, thanks to support from generous IWF donors, the Massachusetts Preservation Projects Fund, and the Acton Community Preservation Fund.
Additionally we:

  • Renovated and leased the tenant's apartment at Faulkner Homestead
  • Created of an office - and brought IWF properties into the internet age
  • Focused on site improvements - enhanced parking, and the restoration of the 1890's "avenue of trees" on the Faulkner grounds
  • In January '21 we hosted the Chamber Theatre Production Co.'s filming of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow at the Faulkner House - see photos.

In 2021 we hope to invite you all back to events at our properties - watch this space for updates on upcoming events.

Thank you to all our supporters and grantors for your continued support!
