The Captain’s House, also known as the Burnham Cottage, in Bridgewater is being renovated. This work is required by the State Historic Preservation Office as “mitigation” for the loss of the Grange structure. First Selectman Curtis Read says residents will notice that the old building, which had already been repaired and moved twice in the past, is in bad condition. The town plans to reuse some of salvageable wood and other old wood to reconstruct the Captain’s House very close to its current location. The project should be finished this Fall. The Bridgewater Historical Society will return the stored historic artifacts and manage the mini museum as part of their offerings to the public.
