The past two days have seen the first significant snow falls of this winter season in our area. Here’s a photo I took this morning of Milford’s Sanford-Bristol House (c. 1789), covered by freshly fallen snow from last night:
However, this grand old home isn’t quite out of the woods yet, and wouldn’t have even been standing here this morning, in fact, had it not been for the Milford Preservation Trust and their relentless effort to save it from unreasonable demolition.
Needless to say, this preservation fight has resulted in substantial legal costs for the Milford Preservation Trust, and they certainly can use your help. So, in this season of giving, please consider making them a donation, and perhaps showing your support even further by becoming a member.
You can easily donate via PayPal or credit card on the Milford Preservation Trust’s home page, and enroll as a member via their online membership page. Any support you provide will help further the Milford Preservation Trust’s mission to keep Milford’s history alive by preserving is historic places and properties.
And if you’re interested in purchasing the Sanford-Bristol House to prevent its demolition, please note that it’s still on the market, and will be until January 13th, 2014.
