Exciting Preservation News from New Canaan

June 26, 2019

The family of Eliot and Molly Noyes has donated a preservation easement on their 1954 home, commonly known as Noyes II, to the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation. The house was the second in New Canaan designed for his family by Eliot Noyes, the earliest of the “Harvard Five” architects to establish residence in New Canaan.

The easement requires that future owners maintain the house and obtain permission from the Trust for any alterations, which must preserve the significant features of the structure. Concurrently, an Advisory Committee has been established to work with the family “to consider possibilities for the future stewardship of the house”.
