The Foundation is selling lawn signs for people to put up to show support for the preservation of historic buildings in our city as part of their effort to publicize the threat to the Phila Street properties.
They are also seeking people who have attempted to purchase the buildings.

Over the years the Foundation has been contacted by numerous buyers who have expressed interest in preserving the structures. “We know there are people who have been serious about rehabilitating these properties. However, nearly all of them have indicated that the sellers are difficult and unwilling to negotiate a price,” stated Executive Director Samantha Bosshart.
The Foundation is seeking people who have attempted to buy either of these properties to submit public comments about their experience. Please submit your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Wednesday, January 20th or contact the Foundation at email@example.com.Preservation Website
