Energy expert joins historic site board

MIDDLEBURY — The board of directors of the Middlebury Community House has announced that Jared Moats, owner of Structural Energy Corp. (SEC) of Middlebury, has joined the board.
Moats’ company has renovated and worked on historic buildings throughout Vermont for the last 15 years. In 2011, working with a match grant from Vermont Division for Historic Preservation, SEC completed the restoration of the original timber frame of the lower level at the Community House as well as other energy efficiency improvements.
Moats joins the board at an interesting time. Earlier this year a community planning meeting was held to determine the best uses for the Community House and a code assessment was performed. Moats’ knowledge and experience of construction and restoration will help the board develop a plan of action once a new use is established.
Moats lives in Salisbury village with his wife and two daughters.
The Middlebury Community House is located at 6 Main St. next to the post office. In 1816 the house was built as the family home for Hon. Horatio Seymour. Seymour’s great-grandchildren, Jessica Swift and Philip Battell Stewart, eventually gave the house and land to the people of Middlebury and vicinity. Today the house serves as a community-gathering place.
