Osterhout barn

The LeVie-Hilton barn is just the latest in cherished places that have been lost; identifying what we value now will help preserve our remaining heritage for the future.

To the Editor:

The possible eventual demise of the Hilton-LeVie barn on Route 85A near Voorheesville emphasizes the need for a listing of historical sites and landmarks in the town of New Scotland that should be protected from owners and future owners of those properties.

In a year, the mammoth 1898 Osterhout barn will be gone to make way for upscale country club homes. A councilman is determined to move the barn and find a new use for it elsewhere in town.
