Local historic community fights to preserve stone barracks
Community members hope Barracks plan not set in stone

PLATTSBURGH - Members of the local historical community are sure of one thing when it comes to the proposed deal for the Old Stone Barracks: They want it stopped.

"I would prefer it if no development at all was allowed on that ground," Howard Miller said. "It's just too sacred."

About 40 people, many representing local history groups, attended a meeting Friday afternoon to discuss their concerns about the barracks.

The barracks, built in 1838, and 7.75 acres of adjoining land were offered to Montreal developer Bernard Schneider last month for $35,000.
