Letters: Progress report: Historical resources project well underway

To the editor:

The town of Cazenovia's project to identify and inventory its historic and architectural resources has reached a significant milestone: Over 300 properties have been identified as having potential significance to the history, culture, or broad economic development of the town!

Searching for our history has uncovered many unknown treasures, however, we still need your help! Establishing a record in time of the property requires a photograph. Team members on the project have been searching the neighborhoods, taking photographs. But many of the properties cannot be seen from the road.

If you suspect or know your property to be old and you know it cannot be seen, please contact us and we will arrange for someone to stop by. Only the exterior of the buildings or house will be photographed. All such properties become candidates for further research as to their original owners' part in making Cazenovia what it is today.

Be a part of Cazenovia's history. Contact Sarah Webster at dpswebster@aol.com or Sara Chevako at stchevako@frontiernet.net to include your property in Cazenovia's historical inventory.

And in the meantime, see how much you know of Cazenovia by checking out the Discovering Cazenovia's History column appearing every two weeks in this paper.
