Beverly historic district named to national register


“It is the opinion of the (Massachusetts Historical Commission) that both the Hotel Trafton and the Cushing Carriage House are significant contributing elements of the district,” Simon wrote.

Dellicker has said the company is reconsidering its plan to demolish the buildings. He could not be reached for comment for this story.

The National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the country’s historic places worthy of preservation.

It is designed to “identify, evaluate, and protect America’s historic and archeological resources,” according to its website.

In its nomination, Windover said the Beverly Depot-Odell Park district “is significant for the intact collection of diverse commercial, industrial, transportation and government resources it contains from former factories and hotels to a train station, post office, public park, and railroad bridge.”
