I'm beyond distressed and to the point of righteous anger at the across-the-board abandonment of long-standing historic preservation standards in Alexandria. Where I live, in Del Ray, the city is complicit in the gradual buidling-by-building destruction of the Town of Potomac Historic District.

Alexandria needs to be careful not to become another cookie cutter community. It is important to preserve our rich history and build on it ... not over it!!

As an Alexandria resident and a historic preservation professional, I ask that you please defer a decision on this property until the significance of this property can be evaluated. The City should discourage the demolition of historic buildings and should look at other options.

A historic house on a lot full of trees and greenery---or we could have two houses and few trees and little greenery and lots of storm run-off. The City should purchase the property and utilize it for the common good.

We are so fortunate to have this landmark in our city. It would be a travesty to let the house be demolished. We must preserve our history.

This house was built in 1850, owned by a free African American man named Hampshire Fractious in the years immediately after the Civil War, and is said to have been used as a hospital during the war.

Thanks for adding your voice.

The city needs to review its decisions on construction permits and tear downs in Alexandria. Squeezing enormous, looming houses on tiny lots and tearing down historic houses to squeeze in two houses is not what people want in their neighborhoods. Think about our Alexandria communities before making these decisions.
