This is terrible! Why are they tearing it down? Probably to put in some eyesore apartment complex. It almost looks like they are moving it.
I wonder why as well. There are no signs indicating that there is any type of business or project going on at the site.
I was at the old mill site last summer, before I knew the home was there & you couldn't see it from the road or river. Now, they've cleared off the entire hillside. While it does appear from the picture that they are moving the home, it is unfortunately obvious in person that it's a demolition.
It is not a demolition! The people who owned the property had no interest in the historic home. They wanted to turn the property commercial. My husband and I purchased the home, and had a house mover come in. It was a huge,heavy, three story house with 5 fireplace chimneys and 3 floors, plus a cellar. It had to be cut up in to pieces to move it. We will be restoring the house to its former glory, and will be making it our home.
My apologies to Kary Newsome & her home! I am very happy to hear that her family has taken on this project. I guess next time I should do some research before assuming that something is being torn down. Live and learn!
