Historic house headed for demolition
READFIELD, Maine (AP) — A Maine town historical society says it hopes to save an 1825 brick house that is headed toward demolition.
The Kennebec Journal reports the Dudley Haines II house in Readfield used to serve as administrative offices for Saunders Manufacturing.
The president of the company told the Readfield town manager in an email that the house has fallen in disrepair and it is cost prohibitive to remodel.
Readfield Historical Society founder Dale Potter-Clark says the organization wants to see the building saved, but they don’t have the manpower or the means.
She says she hopes to get photos of the interior for historical posterity.
Town Manager Eric Dyer says no demolition permit has been issued as of Friday, but he expects to see one soon.
