Coppola Brothers LLC, holds a certificate for historic renovations through the NJ Public Works Contractor program enabling them to bid on a project at the famous Red Mill Museum Village http://www.redmill.org/. The Red Mill was built in 1810 and used for wool processing, grinding feed, flour, and stone plaster, and later added an adjacent quarry to the property. In 1860, a two-family tenant house was added to the property to house quarry workers. The challenge was to renovate this 162 year-old historic structure back to its original specifications. This project was under scrutiny by the Executive Director of the Red Mill Paul Muir (also the mayor of a neighboring town). Muir states “This home preserves the stories of those who have been lost to time, the homes of the well known and wealthy still exist, this house is a rare opportunity to share the home and story of the workers who sustained the region for many years.” Also supervising were the  the Red Mill board of directors, the Red Mill’s Curator of Collections Elizabeth Cole, town construction and code officials, historic architect, Michael Margulies of Eclectic Architecture, and Planner Haley McAlpine from the New Jersey Historic Trust who funded the project through a  capital grant. Coppola Brothers recently received the Award of Excellence from Metropolitan Builders and Contractors Association of New Jersey Home – Metropolitan Builders & Contractors Association of New Jersey (metrobca.org) for “Best Historical Renovation” for this project!
