BOSTON (AP) - State officials are hoping to find partners to rehabilitate four historic, but little-used buildings at state parks in Massachusetts.

As part of its Historic Curatorship Program, the Department of Conservation and Recreation has put out a call to private groups interested in maintaining the properties in exchange for a permit or a long-term lease.

The four buildings include the 1847 Gatehouse at Lake Cochituate (Koh-CHI’-choo-at) State Park in Wayland; the circa 1800 Farmhouse and Barn at Lake Wyola in Shutesbury; the 1903 Superintendent’s House at Mt. Wachusett State Reservation in Princeton; and the 1903 Officer’s Quarters at Fort Revere in Hull.

The agency is seeking expressions of interest by March 9, with formal proposals to follow.

DCR Commissioner Leo Roy says the curatorship program takes an entrepreneurial approach to preserving history.
