Kenneth Hewes Barricklo, Holland Society Trustee and Architect

The new Holland Society headquarters and library at 20 W. 44th Street in New York is the result of hours of volunteer work by many individuals, including literally hundreds of hours donated to the society by the renowned historical preservation architect and Holland Society Trustee Kenneth Hewes Barricklo.

Kenneth Hewes BarrickloThe beautiful classic library design is very typical of Mr. Barricklo's work. Mr. Barricklo received his bachelor of Architecture Degree from the University of Texas in 1966 and is a Registered Architect in the States of New York and New Jersey. He practices architecture in the historic Jacobus Van Elmendorph House in Kingston, New York. In fact, the now office building is a Dutch stone house identified as having existed on the property in 1668 and is listed on the Kingston Registry of Historic Places. Mr. Barricklo's interest in historic preservation is reflected in his impressive list of projects which includes work over a fifteen year period with the Historic Preservation and Restoration of buildings at Sailor's Snug Harbor on Staten Island. His firm designed historic facades for all of the storefronts of the Schermerhorn Row Block, a major waterfront historic preservation project at the South Street Seaport in New York. The New York Botanical Garden at the Bronx, specifically the completed restoration of the beautiful copper roofing and cornices are the result of Mr. Barricklo's efforts.

Kenneth Hewes BarrickloAlthough impossible to list all of his projects in this profile, when the original 1803 New York City Hall rotunda needed restoration it was Mr. Barricklo to whom the City turned for the designs and recommendations resulting in the award to him of the prestigious Lucy Moses Award for Excellence in Historic Preservation from the New York City Landmarks Conservancy. Later work on the City Hall including the replacement of the roofing, rebuilding of the clock tower and the restoration of the Statue of Justice atop resulted in the same award to Mr. Barricklo a second time.

The Holland Society of New York is eternally grateful for the donation of the many, many hours of volunteer architecture work from a professional of Mr. Barricklo's stature. He is the recipient of numerous awards and honors including the 2002 Holland Society of New York's Gold Medal to a Member for Distinguished Achievement in the Field of Historic Preservation and Restoration. Mr. Barricklo serves on the Board of Trustees of the Holland Society of New York and is President of the Ulster County Branch of the Society.

Mr. Barricklo has a son, John and a daughter, Tania and four grandchildren. Son John and grandson Jonah are members of the Holland Society of New York. Mr. Barricklo and his Wife, Gioia Timpanelli, live in Kingston, New York. Gioia is a former college English Professor who won two Emmys for a series of Public Broadcasting System specials on Poetry and Art. Ms. Timpanelli started an organization of worldwide revivalist story telling which brings ancient and medieval story telling to modern adult audiences throughout the world.
