Will pre-Revolutionary house get the axe?

Posted by Ralph Ranalli June 4, 2007 02:08 PM


The Historical Commission will vote on whether to delay the demolition of an early 18th century house at its meeting tomorrow.

The building, located at 6 Farm St., is the oldest house built completely in Dover, according to commission member Paul Tedesco.

The owner of the structure is seeking to put a new house in its place, but a town bylaw grants the Historical Commission the authority to delay the demolition for one year, Tedesco said.

If the commission exercises this option, the owner would be expected to work with the commission to save the house during the year, he said. The commission’s meeting on Tuesday will be held at the Dover Town House at 7 p.m.
