Cambridge, NY

Client: Cambridge Valley Community Development and Preservation Partnership, Inc.

Project Type: Existing Conditions Report

The Rutland and Washington Railroad, which reached Cambridge in 1851-1852, was constructed to transport slate and marble from northern Washington County and Vermont to the important railroad centers of Troy and Albany, NY. Despite years of deferred maintenance, the freight yard buildings retain a high degree of architectural integrity and historic building fabric.

John G. Waite Associates, Architects prepared an existing conditions report including a history of the site, historic and existing conditions, photographs, measured drawings, problems of repair, and recommended appropriate uses for the buildings.
