The Paramount Theatre, Downtown Rutland, Vermont

The historic Paramount Theatre re-opened in 2000 after undergoing an intensive one year period of complete renovations. This project was cited by the Preservation Trust of Vermont for its Historic Preservation efforts. The original building was constructed in 1913 as a live entertainment venue seating up to 1,000 people. Throughout the years, the Paramount became a movie theater, went dark in the 1980's and deteriorated to the point where demolition was considered. A group of concerned "friends" bought the theatre in order to save it from further damage and began a campaign to restore the Paramount to its original splendor

The Plantz House- Putney, Vermont

The Plantz House was built circa 1900 as the residence for Dr. Laura Plantz, the first female practitioner in Vermont. The building was later purchased by Windham College and the main house was used as a dormitory, infirmary and classrooms while the attached barn functioned as a dining hall, lounge and bookstore. The building was later retrofitted into a twelve unit apartment building which was neglected and overtime became a dilapidated eyesore for the community.
