The Architectural Heritage Foundation is delighted to welcome back the Student Conservation Association (SCA) to the Speedway Headquarters for another day of pre-restoration site work. Last November, the Hingham-based SCA Historic Preservation crew cleared several tons of vegetation and debris from the historic complex in anticipation of this year's upcoming construction start date. The 2018 crew did such a great job, that AHF and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (the state agency in charge of the site) invited the new 2019 cohort to finish the work. On February 25, thirteen young women and men will remove several decades-worth of unused objects from the Speedway's interiors. Their help will ensure a smooth transition to the rehabilitation work slated to begin in the spring or summer. Thank you, SCA! We look forward to working with you again!
