Boos to the city of Glens Falls, which seized a historic building on Culvert Street for back taxes in 2014, but has done little to keep the building up since then. Now, the city is accepting bids to demolish it. Fortunately, news of the pending demolition has mobilized advocates for the preservation of the city’s architectural highlights. This building is on the state and national registers of historic places. Only 627 square feet, it was built in the Second Empire style and was owned in the 19th century by a prominent local doctor. Eric Unkauf, owner of the Shirt Factory building on Lawrence Street, has volunteered to help with stabilizing the building, although he doesn’t want to take over ownership of it. Bob Joy, a well-known local architect, has examined the house and believes it can be saved, according to Unkauf. Adirondack Architectural Heritage has issued a call for help and said it will advise any coalition that comes together to save the house. It’s too bad that all this help and advice wasn’t sought before the house reached an advanced state of deterioration, but the effort to preserve it is worthwhile, especially if it leads to more such preservation work in the city. A group of concerned citizens plans to attend Tuesday’s Common Council meeting at 7:30 p.m. to express support for saving the structure.
