History stands in way of new school Historic Preservation Commission objects to razing houses

FARMINGTON — Maine’s Historic Preservation Commission has now taken a position on the school district’s proposal to raze a Perham Street home to make way for a bus access road to the new Mallett School downtown.

The plans for the new school was presented to the Commission months ago as part of the Maine Department of Education’s review process for new construction.
Last week, however, just two weeks before the state Board of Education was to approve the site, Commission members said they objected to the plan to demolish one of the 19th Century homes because it would have a significant impact on the historic district, according to a memo.
