Preservation of 1914 Home
Chris Herzog and Betty McMillen
The Woman's Club of Lakeside and the Lakeside Historical Society have joined forces to help preserve a 1914 Craftsman Style bungalow in Bostonia.
A developer wants this home out of history so he can build thirteen new homes on the property. But, he has offered to give to give it to the LHS, buy we have no place for it to rest. So, we walked the streets and gathered over 150 signatures from people who supported our wishes to preserve the old home, barn and trees at it's present site.
We asked the developer to save the house and incorporate it into his new project. We feel that it would be an attribute to his development and would preserve the community character. The Lakeside Planning Group agreed with us, but now the project must go before the County Planning Commission.
Stay tuned for further developments. Please note that preservation is the Society's prime function in Lakeside and we are highly visible and active in our community.
