Joseph Simes House gets state money

Continue reading below

State officials recently awarded a $50,000 grant to assist in the restoration of the Joseph Simes House at 29 Manomet Point Road. Established in 1863 as a gentleman’s farm, the property was formerly used as a summer resort and camp, and is one of the few 19th-century estates left in Plymouth. It is owned and maintained by the Simes House Foundation, a local nonprofit. Will Shain, secretary of the foundation, said the entire project could cost up to $2 million and the house should be ready by 2014. A roof is being installed, and the windows, doors, and siding will be restored. Then the interior will be renovated. The foundation plans to use the first floor of the house as meeting space, to lease the second floor as office space, and to convert the top floor into two affordable apartments, he said. The Simes House Foundation will hold its next general membership meeting Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Plymouth Moose Lodge at 601 State Road. The public is welcome to attend.
