Pact sought on historic house

March 23, 2003|By Jennifer Blenner | Jennifer Blenner,SUN STAFF

Nearly two months after the Little Stone House near Creswell in Harford County was razed, efforts to resurrect the structure continue. The Stepping Stone Museum, a private, nonprofit museum in Havre de Grace, will vote this week on whether to purchase the stones.

"We are interested in pursuing this project, but questions still need to be addressed," said Linda Noll, executive director for the Stepping Stone Museum in Susquehanna State Park.

An agreement between the museum and the owner needs to be completed, Noll said.

If the proposal is passed, the stones will be collected and moved to the museum.

The house was one of the oldest structures in Harford County.

The museum's board of directors; property owner Henry Harjes III of Columbia; Chad Shrodes, a preservation planner with the county's Department of Planning and Zoning; Harford County Dels. Richard K. Impallaria, a 7th District Republican, and Susan K. McComas, a District 35B Republican, will meet to discuss the project.
