2019 lifetime preservation award recipients

KATHY STEVENS & CROWELL FREEMAN

Leaders, Preservationists, Philanthropists


Kathy Stevens and Crowell Freeman have long connections with the town of North Andover. Kathy is a native and Crowell a proud graduate of Brooks School. Both have been true and loyal supporters of the North Andover Historical Society in time and funding and truly deserving of this year’s Lifetime Preservation Award.

Kathy attended Brown University, receiving her BA in Economics in 1960, and went on to complete both a Masters (Northeastern) and her PhD. (Purdue University). Kathy was a faculty member at both University of Lowell and Merrimack College. She is a long-time member of the North Andover League of Women Voters (Candidates Forum) and the North Parish Church, where she served on both the Board of Trustees and the Finance Committee.

Crowell attended Boston University for International Business, then Suffolk Law School and went on to a solo practice in Boston. He has always been involved in various social service organizations: volunteering at the Pine Street Mission, serving on the boards of the Edinburgh Center in Lexington and Elder Services in Lawrence.

Both Kathy and Crowell have given so much to the North Andover Historical Society and the preservation of the Old Center. Both serve on the board of the iconic Brick Store Company of Andover, North Parish Church, with Crowell currently serving as President. Kathy has served as president of the Historical Society board for seven years and as treasurer for nine. Crowell and Kathy were instrumental in organizing the Parson Barnard’s 300th Birthday party in 2015. They are well known for their appearance there as Parson and Mrs. Thomas Barnard, and have been key factors in the success of our 17th Century Saturdays. Both have volunteered for various school programs.
