H.P. Cummings Construction Company played a vital role in our project, providing exceptional pre-construction services. Working closely with Black River Design, we embarked on the restoration and renovation of the historic Spaulding Graded School to create the Vermont History Center. This magnificent building now serves as a hub for preserving and showcasing our rich history, housing a research library, collections storage, exhibits, educational facilities, and offices. The project encompassed an impressive area of over 60,000 square feet, with 40,000 square feet undergoing extensive renovation and an additional 20,000 square feet allocated for future expansion.
Within the Vermont History Center, we proudly display a vast collection of 20,000 artifacts, including fine arts, crafts, household goods, clothing, agricultural tools, and industrial products from the pre-contact period. These treasures offer a captivating glimpse into our past and allow visitors to connect with the history of our region.
“HPC was absolutely the right choice for the job. We’re heading into the balance of the work with a great team in place and a solid working relationship established. Ben Harrington and his team have helped us wrestle with the tough issues (budget, scope, schedule) in a very professional, courteous and patient manner.” – Jeffry Glasberg, Owner Representative
