Chatham Cottage Revival
It Takes a Village
Architect Patrick Ahearn and Whitla Brothers Builders preserve and renovate a beloved 19th-century house on School Street in Chatham
The expression “It takes a village to raise a child” is well known. But equally true is the idea that it takes a village to care for a home. We all live as part of a larger community and have a responsibility to preserve elements of a community’s past, contribute to its vibrancy in the present and create a legacy for the future. The story of a 19th-century house on School Street in Chatham is a perfect microcosm of all of those forces.
