August 20, 2008: Save the inn from eminent domain
To The Editor:
It has come to my attention that the lovely historic and completely unique Susan’s Pleasant Pheasant Farm Inn may be destroyed in the name of “progress.” I am shocked to learn of this. I have spent many long and peaceful weekends there with my young children who learned about the pleasures of the Catskill Mountains from the gracious hosts, Susan and Jim Kelly.
It will be a real travesty if the inn is destroyed and its historical significance to the region is lost. I am sure there is another way for the bridge to be re-built without compromising the inn and its surrounding property.
I have faith in the attitude of the local government toward the character of the Catskill Mountain Region as its primary responsibility. Please save the inn!
