Re: “Winooski's Historic Mansion Could Be Demolished

Back in the 1970's, my older brother worked to the point of exhaustion to preserve the last remaining buildings of the original settlement that became Idaho Falls as well as the first wooden home built on the eastern side of the river but to no avail-my hometown brought in a consultant who was paid the then princely sum of $3000 whose advice was to just tear it all down. After he left, the town council realized they had no real plans as to what to do with the lots. The site of the old home (built by the Keefer family) became an ugly insurance office which still stands. The site of Eagle Rock became a library, ironically. When I read about the Mansion in Winooski possibly being slated for destruction, I felt the same pang of sadness that I see when a town that chooses to forget their history rather than celebrating it. Where is the logic of building another generic structure in a town that in another era had so many gorgeous buildings? Growth for growth's sake makes more sense to a cancer cell. Please keep the building there and celebrate it.
