Historic Wilmington Needs to Preserve Real History and Move ON!

It is vile for folks to carry on about buildings like the old railroad building that was made useful for the police department. CFCC is building an incredible facility that will honor that history AND will provide the citizens an even greater restored look of what that area looked like in the railroad's hayday! The cost of preserving an out of date building that had little functionality was absurd and a waste, but the cost of restoring a piece of histroy while providing our city with a new landmark and our students and citizens and remarkable facility is what the BOT and others accomplished. The failures that call themselves the Historic Wilmingotn Society etc are the ones that tried to stop this. They would rather preserve something usely and a blight than to create something that honors our history and provides for our future and the character of our city..where are all these high toned folks in reference to preserving the magnificent church and manse on fourth street? An artisitic and real cultural gem that needs our attention...oh...but that is not going to cause the controvesy with city leaders..and it is not in the "right" neighborhood. Please...go have a shrimparoo and leave the rest of us to enjoy our city that YOU all have had and have NOTHING to do with preserving.
