COOPERSTOWN – Citing public outcry against the destruction of one of the oldest houses on Fair Street, Teresa Drerup, Altonview Architects, withdrew the demolition application just moments ago from the agenda of the village’s Historic Preservation & Architectural Review Board.

Drerup is also HPARB chair, although she recused herself on this application.

“The main function of our board is historic preservation,” said HPARB vice chair Roger MacMillan, who took the call from Drerup just after 2 p.m.  “There was an awful lot of public sentiment about tearing down this house, and it would have never flown.”
