A resident’s perspective.
I am having a difficult time believing that council is contemplating the demolition of the Wilson Farmhouse. Did we, as a city, not learn anything from the Mitchell Farmhouse demolition? Guelph promotes itself as heritage friendly, and yet council’s actions, past and present, contradict that with demolitions such as these. The Wilson farmhouse, like the Mitchell farmhouse, is a link to our past. From the letters and editorials I have read, I believe the citizens know this.
Look to the past mistakes and please, preserve our heritage. LW
