Agawam–David R. Cecchi, chairman of the Agawam Historical Commission, laments that oftentimes the past is lost to development and indifference.
"I love my hometown, and I don't want the things that helped shape this town, for better or worse, lost to the ages. History needs to be shared," he said.
A graphic designer, he has been involved with the historical commission since 1994, working on projects including creation of the Agawam Demolition Delay Ordinance, state highway improvements to Main Street in Agawam, creation of the Agawam Center National Register Historic District and placement of School Street Barn on the National Register of Historic Places.
Cecchi is recently honored by Preservation Massachusetts with its Julie McCarthy Community Spirit Award, recognized for his work and commitment to historic preservation in his community.
