One of the larger historical homes in Guilderland has been rezoned from single-family residential to business non-retail professional, to help the owners, who have been trying to sell it for years, find a buyer.
The current caretakers of the Federal home built by John Veeder feel they belong at Rose Hill and have invested themselves in its upkeep.
Municipalities can adopt zoning to preserve historic buildings and individuals, too, can do their part to maintain their homes in ways that enrich a community.
