The Committee discussed the demolition permit which had been received by the Town for the house located at 1075 Gorham Street. The Committee reviewed the materials available on the property, including a report produced in 2002 recommending designation of the house.

The Committee utilized the heritage resource evaluation criteria form to examine the features of the house and evaluate their heritage value. The Committee noted that the house was notable due to its Neo-Classical/Regency style and design features. Members also noted that it represented an historical link to Bogarttown and is one of the last remaining buildings of the former town.
