Sen. Linares Congratulates Bacon Academy, Applauds Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation

December 28, 2016

Sen. Art Linares today congratulated the Trustees and Proprietors of Bacon Academy on their receipt of $10,000 to assess the condition of the academy and plan for its preservation. He also commended the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation, which awarded the funding to Bacon Academy.

Sen. Linares said, “Bacon Academy and its buildings add to the character of Colchester and our state. I am glad these steps are being taken to assess and preserve these important historic structures. The Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation recognizes that if we don’t take steps now, we could lose these buildings and our state’s history along with them. Bacon Academy is part of what makes Connecticut unique, and such a great place to live.”

Sen Linares represents Chester, Clinton, Colchester, Deep River, East Haddam, East Hampton, Essex, Haddam, Lyme, Old Saybrook, Portland and Westbrook.
