Pamela W. Fox

Local Preservationist

Pamela Fox has been a major force in Weston’s preservation community since she moved to the town 15 years ago. Ms. Fox sits on a number of boards and commissions including the planning board, open space committee, community preservation committee, Weston Land Trust, and until recently, the Weston Historical Society. She was a guiding force behind the implementation of Weston’s demolition delay by-law and strengthened the scenic road by-law. Ms. Fox also prepared the town’s first comprehensive survey as a consultant to the Weston Historical Commission and was instrumental in the preservation of the Case Estates.

Ms. Fox’s further contributions to the field of preservation include authoring two books about the history of the area, Farm Town to Suburb: The History and Architecture of Weston Massachusetts 1830–1980, and Preserving Weston’s Rural Character. She authored the Weston Open Space Plan for the Weston Open Space Committee as well as the Community Preservation Plan for the Community Preservation Committee.

She has served as editor for the Weston Land Trust Bulletin and the Weston Historical Society Bulletin, and writes a quarterly history column in WellesleyWeston Magazine. Her tireless work on local preservation projects and her talent for sharing Weston’s history with a wider audience make Pamela a valuable contributor to her community.
