    And done.

    How’s the effort looking down that way John?

    • John Poole says:

      Thanks very much, Bill!

      A great deal of public support seems to be steadily building, along with much wide-spread publicity in the news media, all thanks to the dedicated and continuous efforts of Milford City Historian Richard Platt and the Milford Preservation Trust.

      Am truly hoping the final outcome of all this favors preservation of the home. Thanks again, Bill, for all your continued support, and especially for your recent posting on the Sanford Bristol House, as well.

    I support the efforts of Milford Preservation Trust, Inc. to prevent the demolition of the Sanford/Bristol house at 111/113 North St., Milford, CT. As an architectural historian, I understand how few of these 18th century houses survive in Connecticut. We cannot afford to lose this important part of Milford’s history. It is especially saddening to see the effort to demolish this home being led by someone who should be protecting it.

    Just sent it to them. Let me know if I can help.

    • John Poole says:

      Thanks so much, Tod!

      Will keep you up to date.

      BTW, I’ve included Heritage Resources in my blog roll. It’s an excellent resource and hopefully will be of great use to the many frequent readers here.

      Thanks again!

    Done. Thanks for all your work on this John!

    • John Poole says:

      Thanks very much, Marian!

      I’m glad we’ve been able to help each other out with our respective preservation causes in recent times (e.g., Peter Tufts House). It’s great to be networked like this, isn’t it?!

    John -

    Can’t know if it might help, but I’m glad to lend my voice.

  6. Elizabeth Pratt Fox says:

    I just sent off an email! People who buy old houses should want to save old houses. No 18th century house should end up in the landfill.

    • John Poole says:

      Thanks so much, Elizabeth!

      Yes, I totally agree with you. That they’ve survived so long means they should be granted a future, as well. And not discarded just because of one individual’s goals for the present.

      Best regards,
