GREENWICH - Supporters of a Greenwich park known for its natural beauty want to make sure it's also known for its architectural history.
The Greenwich Point Conservancy has been working for more than a decade to save Greenwich Point Park.
The park, formerly the Tod Family estate before it was bought by the town, overlooks the Long Island Sound and is decorated with the silhouette of the Manhattan skyline.
"It's very unusual to have a property like this, where you have almost a dozen buildings from the turn of the century and a few earlier that we can repurpose and use for the residents of town," says Chris Franco, the Greenwich Point Conservancy's co-founder and president.
After raising $3.5 million and overseeing renovations to the Innis Arden cottage and now a neighboring barn on the park's property, Franco and his fellow board members will look to restore the historic Chimes Tower.
