We want your opinions

ISSUE:

On Monday, the school board delayed a vote on whether to raze the old school administration building to make way for improvements for an adjacent elementary school.

Recently, a county development review panel considered a developer's plan for a senior citizens townhouse complex that could require tearing down a 1791 manor house on Moores Mill Road that once was home to the family of William Paca, a signatory to the Declaration of Independence.

And the fate of the Tudor House, boyhood home to John Wilkes Booth, has been cast into uncertainty in recent months.

In all three cases, preservationists have rallied in support of saving the buildings, arguing that losing them would further harm the historic character of Harford County.
