After attending the Deliberative Session on February 2 on Warrant Articles, I would like to ask that the voting citizens of Kingston, consider voting ‘Yes’ on Article #17, to appropriate monies to “make improvements to the structure of the Grace Daley House, Main Street, Kingston, and allow for its continued use in the Town of Kingston”.
In the event that Article #17 should not pass, I would like to ask that the voters consider voting No on Article #18: an Article to raze the Grace Daley House. Having heard some of the discussion at the meeting, I am convinced that the Grace Daley House has historical value to the town.
Perhaps there are qualified craftsmen and women who might be willing to work on this structure at discounted rates. Also, there are monies available from Preservation grants - both State and Federal.
It seems only fair that some time and thought be given to the possibilities of preservation. by the Historical Committees in town. These committees could evaluate the Grace Daley House for its historical value and future use to the town of Kingston.
