Two local houses nominated for State and National Registers of Historic Places
Andrea Macko from Porcupine Soup reports that the State and National Registers of Historic Places nominated two local properties this week. Fairview Manor in Columbia County and The Alpine in Greene County were nominated. Getting nominated makes properties eligible for various public preservation programs and incentives, such as matching state grants and federal and state historic rehabilitation tax credits. Fairview Manor in Claverack is also known as the Alonzo & Mary E. Flack House. The house was damaged by a fire in 1998. The Alpine, meanwhile, is a summer lodging house in Haines Falls. It could host up to thirty-five guests, and was open through 1963. Read more about this story in Porcupine Soup.
