Baystate Dental Receives 2014 Westfield Preservation Award

WESTFIELD — Baystate Dental P.C., with 13 locations in the Greater Springfield region, recently received the 2014 Westfield Preservation Award from the Westfield Historical Commission for the renovation and repurposing of its former Morgan-Way House at 29 Broad St. in Westfield.

Nominated by the board of Westfield on the Weekends Inc., Baystate Dental P.C., owned and operated by Drs. Kevin Coughlin, Matthew Haluch, and Gary Circosta, were presented the award at City Hall on Oct. 23. Members of Baystate Dental, the Westfield Historical Commission, and the board of Westfield on the Weekends were all present. The Preservation Award recognizes those who have contributed to preserving Westfield’s heritage and historical integrity.

The Morgan-Way house, built in the 1820s, has a rich history, but in recent years had fallen into disrepair and was slated to be demolished. Baystate Dental purchased the property and rehabilitated and restored the structure while preserving the architectural integrity of the building. The former home is now a thriving dental practice, and the structure remains a historical stalwart of Westfield’s Park Square.
