Norwell: Jacobs Homestead Repair Project Update

The historic Jacobs Homestead West Barn on Jacobs Lane in Norwell is in need of extensive repairs.

Norwell Facilities Manager Ted Nichols says renovations needed are roofing repairs, handicap accessibility modifications, some structural repairs, painting and exterior trim repair.

Nichols has the latest update on the Farm House Repair Project:

The project’s team will be back to discuss its findings with the Norwell Board of Selectmen sometime in early July.

According to the Norwell Historical Society, the Jacobs Farm House was built in 1726, and has served as the Society’s headquarters since 1953.
