Total Project Cost estimates: : 

Total Project Cost estimates: Town Hall is listed on the National Historic Building register. Federal funds from the National Park Service are available for aiding in restoration of public historic buildings; the average grant is about $275,000 and can be as much as $775,000.

Total Project Cost estimates: : 

Total Project Cost estimates: The Merrimac, MA town hall cost $2.6 million to renovate in 2004, which included the excavation of 4 feet of basement floor height to make usable space in their basement. As our town hall already has usable height in the basement area, this should not be necessary. Merrimac, MA also installed a two story elevator and a new annex to house the elevator and ADA compliant bathrooms on each level of the building.

Total Project Cost estimates… : 

Total Project Cost estimates… Plymouth, NH Town Hall was renovated in 1996 at a cost of $880,000, including an ADA compliant elevator system and air conditioning throughout the building. McGinley & Kalsow Associates, renovators of Merrimac’s town hall, have ballparked our renovation costs between $2.5 & $3.5 million. Grants are available from the National Park Service as well as other sources to assist in this renovation cost.
