Pending Demolition of Burnett/Garfield Mansion at 84 Main Street
7/16/2014 - Sadly the Town has just heard of the pending sale of the Burnett/Garfield stone house mansion at 84 Main St. to a developer who plans to demolish it. This photo from circa 1900 shows the Stone House #1 when the tower was still on the roof and shortly after the expansion of Stony Brook as part of the Massachusetts District Commission (MDC) Sudbury Reservoir. There are currently numerous discussions and efforts in town including a grass roots coordination (see www.historicalgood.org) seeking to insure the message is getting out to everyone to consider anything and everything to hopefully find an alternative to the demolition. We hope the developer will recognize the passion that town has for this magnificent property and may reconsider.
