HMR is currently working on construction documents for the restoration of the stair hall at Somerville Borough Hall, a gothic revival building originally constructed in 1888 as a residence for Daniel Robert.
Exposure window, installed by Chris Frey of Keystone Preservation, showing two generations of stenciling at the wainscoting. The one on the left is the original stencil. On the right, the stencil is the one clearly shown in the Elks photo. This stencil is contemporaneous with the stencil shown to the right of the plaster bust.
