About

The information herein is mainly from an article in today's Philadelphia Inquirer, beginning on p. B1. The Kennedy Barn is on this 10-acre parcel. The stone barn is two centuries old. The property was once the estate of Rose Rossi, a cofounder of ANRO Inc., a printing company. A developer named Tom Bentley wants to knock it down to build an eight-house subdivision. The Easttown Township Board of Supervisors says he has a certain amount of time to try to sell it first. Preservationists say it is a historic landmark. Bentley "has offered ... to demoish most of the barn, leave its ruins on the site, and erect a plaque on Waterloo Road explaining its historical significance." Lawyer Joseph Kohn, representing a local group who wants to save the barn, says a plaque may someday read, "Here stood a building that was here when James Madison was president ..." Notwithstanding that we are giving the barn a Cyber Plaque, it would be a shame to see it go. We're losing more and more of our heritage every day, just so someone can make a profit.
