Worth preserving

Dear Editor:

Surely there are many local people who have never had the pleasure of visiting the Thompson ranch, though it is very close to our own historical museum. To visit the ranch house is to see what the best of a century-old home was like – both a treat to see with all its old furnishings in tact and a valuable educational experience for younger people and children.

I know finances are very tight for citizens and towns alike, and old buildings require expensive upkeep, but please, for the sake of all current and future residents, provide a way to preserve this one-of-a-kind treasure by working out a viable plan with the developer.

Pat and Bill Fender
