On December 11, 2012, Jerry Vece, Morgan School Building Committee Chair answers question about fate of the historic home proposed for purchase at 69 Killingworth TPKE to make way for a new Morgan School. Demolition is one option, and the first one he mentions. This historic home was built in 1800 on the farm of David LeBarron, a Minuteman who answered the Lexington Alarm in 1775 and was present when the shot heard 'round the world was fired, marching into history. His son Solomon, also a Revolutionary War veteran, lived in the home with his wife Zada and their family. The farm remained in the family for 177 years and the home for 143 years until David's great grandson, Newton, sold it to C Carl Swan in 1943. This house should not be purchased without a clear commitment for preservation. The resolution to purchase should also be rejected as it does not state a purchase price. This is going to Town Meeting this evening, December 12, 2012 at 6:15. Please vote to reject this resolution.
