A $5 million addition for the Stamford Museum & Nature Center got underway with a groundbreaking ceremony Monday. The new farmhouse, which will be used for environmental education programs, marks the center’s first major addition in 50 years, according to the Stamford Advocate. The farmhouse was part of a 2010 master plan but was put on hold after the recession. The current plan relies on a mix of public and private funds, including more than $2.5 million pledged by the state and $300,000 from the city. Renderings show a 4,000-square-foot farmhouse with a deck overlooking Heckscher Farm, designed by Hartford architects TSKP Studio. It is expected to be completed in 18 months. [StamfordAdvocate]
