Call it an occupational hazard, but she loves bringing her work home, so to speak.  Cheryl and her husband, Architect John Grosvenor have rejuvenated three historic homes.  The projects include an 1811 Federal in Newport, RI, an 1818 Federal in Jaffrey, NH, and an 1857 Italianate in Middletown, RI.   

Their preservation efforts helped their Italianate home earn an individual listing on the National Register of Historic Places, the Doris Duke Historic Preservation Award and the Rhody Historic Preservation Award. Their home was featured on PBS' Our Town Middletown series and in Rhode Island Monthly Magazine.  See the project here.

Cheryl enjoys inspiring audiences with her passion for preservation.
