Park Board to Discuss Swift House Proposal Again

| February 21, 2014

By Ken Green, Times Staff

Mike Roberts, owner of the historic Swift House at 98-100 Adams St., said that he was pleased that the Board of Park Commissioners was willing to discuss his offer to move the historic structure at one of the board’s recent meetings

The building has been the subject of much discussion since Roberts announced his willingness to pay to move the structure to nearby land in an effort to preserve a piece of Milton history.

The offer, which involved moving the building to land owned by the Parks and Recreation Department, was first made before an Historical Commission meeting in January. That prompted the Board of Park Commissioners to discuss the possibility at a meeting on Jan. 7.

The Swift House is again on the Park Commissioners’ agenda for their Feb. 27 meeting.

Chrisom said the commissioners would have to do some investigation on the current condition of the more than 200-year-old building, as well as consider possible uses. “It’s something brand new,” he said.
