The work to the cupola and other historical features of the building has been estimated at $100,000. About $75,000 came from Community Preservation Act funds.
The Community House of Hamilton and Wenham was built in 1921 when local philanthropists George and Emily Mandell commissioned architect Guy Lowell to design it. In 2011, the Community House was accepted into the National Register of Historic Places.
Growing up in Hamilton, Silva said it was a privilege to be a part of the project.
“We are very fortunate around this part of the country with church steeples and ornamental cupolas like this,” he said.
