Preserve Kennett Square's National Register Historic District

This petition had 1,097 supporters

I am opposed to the demolition of 3 buildings at Cypress and Broad Streets in our National Register Historic District.  Imagine the effect that the proposed 5 - 7 story hotel would have on the street scape of 100 block of South Broad. The beautifully restored old firehouse and the homes on the east side of S. Broad would be dwarfed- even Holly Peter’s shop and especially Tom Martin’s house, on the corner, would look out of place and insignificant.

I support an upscale hotel in the Borough but not at the expense of the continuity and integrity of our National Register Historic District.  

As a property and business owner in KSQ and former chair of the Kennett Square Historical Commission, I urge you to preserve the Historic District and ask the developers to choose another location for their hotel in the Borough, outside of the Historic District.
