With construction starting later this year for Milton’s Public Library, a page in time will officially come to a close. Unless someone steps in soon, the Dinsmore house which dates back to between 1910 / 1919, will meet the wrecking ball before year's end.
Lifelong resident and Chair of the Milton Historic Preservation Commission Travis Allen offered mixed feelings. “While the design certainly makes a statement that this is Milton’s Library, it’s unfortunate that yet another reminder of our past must be torn down.”
Bob Meyers of the Friends of the Milton Library shared that funds are being raised with the hopes of saving one of the barns and relocating it to another part of the property.
With so much development that has hit a once sleepy and truly rural crossroads in recent years, one can only wonder how Crabapple can still be considered “historic.”
