Historic Park Street Home To Be Converted into Museum 

The town last week received a building permit application for an estimated $750,000 renovation that would convert a historic Park Street home into a museum. The application filed March 16 relates to the Greek Revival-style home at 63 Park St. that once was owned by Maxwell Perkins, the great Scribners editor of Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and (the original) Tom Wolfe. “Convert existing single family dwelling with at home office into a museum with exhibit space, meeting space and offices,” said an application filed on behalf of the property’s owner, a limited liability company whose managing principal is listed in state records as a Manhattan man. He bought the 1836-built house in November 2018 for about $2.5 million.
