HBI works to preserve at-risk historic buildings in Boston?s neighborhoods because they mean so much to community character, economic development and residents? sense of place. Ten years ago, preservationists rallied to ?Save Fenway Park? when the ballpark was threatened with complete redevelopment. Thankfully, more creative heads prevailed and today?s Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park represent the best of preservation alchemy ? bricks, mortar, and memory.
