A project to restore the slate roof and exterior of the Kimball Jenkins Mansion has been recognized as part of the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance’s annual awards.

The award, announced May 12,  recognizes the project for its “thoughtful planning, superb craftsmanship and blue-ribbon communication and outreach strategies that emphasized the importance of preservation tradespeople and historic preservation’s benefits.”

The roughly $400,000 project will repair the 136-year-old slate roof and gables of the Kimball Jenkins Mansion. It follows the 2018 restoration of the roof of the carriage house, one of a half-dozen buildings on the historic estate.

Kimball Jenkins Estate at the intersection of North Main Street and Rt. 202 is best known for its School of Art and an annual art camp. It also holds studios and display spaces for visual art.
