Rosemary wouldn't make up a conversatoin with Herb Vadney

To The Daily Sun,

On behalf of the Belmont Heritage Commission and Belmont Historical Society we thank the community for interest, participation and support on March 11 and throughout the year. Generous approvals for the Heritage Fund and John M. Sargent Fund requests, will help match a bandstand restoration grant from the Land and Community Heritage Investment Program, and establish a long-term project to "Preserve Belmont History" with digital archives of vintage photographs.

Despite disappointment that a proposal for Historic Demolition Review will not be implemented this year, we believe a community conversation about demolition decisions is needed. Much Belmont history has been lost, including the Badger and Fellows dams, Railroad Station, Village School House, Baptist Church Parsonage and significant barns and residences throughout our town.

Citizens and others have been resourceful protecting local treasures, like the re-purposed Belmont Mill, architecturally distinctive library, 1792 Province Road Meeting House and the landmark Victorian-era Bandstand. We salute them, and appreciate the privilege of serving the community's future, in part, by celebrating its past.
