And Another One Bites the Dust

The Stotlar house, located at 507 West Main, is up for demolition. The house, an example of Prairie Style architecture dating back to 1916, was severely damaged during the windstorms last May. According to the article, a descendant of the original owner tried to purchase the building from the current owner, Home Rentals, but never had his calls returned.

It's interesting that the Preservation Commission says there's nothing the commission can do about the process:

Helen Deniston, a commissioner with the Carbondale Preservation Commission, believes it's a shame the home can't be saved, but says there's nothing the commission can do.

"It's sad that we don't have any way of preventing this," Deniston said. "Unfortunately, there's just so much we can do.

since the commission is having a demolition appropriateness meeting at the property next Tuesday at 3:30:

There will be a meeting of the City of Carbondale Preservation Commissions Certificate of Appropriateness Committee to review the demolition application for property located at 507 West Main Street. The meeting will be held on Tuesday January 5, 2010 at 3:30p.m. at 507 West Main Street.
