Owners of Sophia Smith House Honored

Martin Antonetti, curator of rare books, and Nina Antonetti, assistant professor of landscape studies, recently received this year’s Preservation Award from the Hatfield Historical Commission for their extensive renovation of the former home of Sophia Smith.

The Antonettis purchased the house in which Sophia Smith was raised, located at 22 Main St. in Hatfield, from Smith College in 2006. Since moving in with their now 9-year-old daughter, Georgia, the couple has updated two of the home’s bedrooms, renovated the kitchen and dining room, and built a new garage.

The Antonettis took special care to make sure all the renovations considered the home’s historical context. The house was built in 1790 and was deeded to Smith College in 1946. It was used as a rental property by Smith faculty and staff until its sale to the Antonettis.

The deed to the Sophia Smith house includes a covenant that the house will eventually be resold to the college.

The Antonettis were presented with the annaul award during a meeting of the Historical Society last week.
