Bayfield Town Hall To Historic Register
(2008-01-22)
(ksut) - HOST LEAD: The fate of the existing Bayfield Town Hall, once a new town hall is built, has now been secured.
KSUT's Victor Locke reports.

VICTOR: By a 3-0 vote, LaPlata County Commissioners have accepted the existing Bayfield Town Hall to the County Historic Register, protecting the more than 100 year old building from demolition or significant change.
Constructed in 1900, the building originally housed a drug store, grew to include a locker plant and creamery, then a grocery, and a five and dime/antique store combination, until becoming the current Bayfield Town Hall in 1978.
Bayfield Utility Clerk Brenda Jones says Bayfield Town Government plans to move out when a new town hall is completed in November.
JONES: THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF PINE RIVER HAS THE FIRST RIGHT OF REFUSAL TO PURCHASE THE BUILDING WHERE WE ARE CURRENTLY AT 11 WEST MILL STREEET, AND THEN IF THAT'S THE CASE THEN THEY'LL MOVE INTO THAT AND MAKE THAT A MUSEUM HOPEFULLY.
It's anticipated the Pine River Valley Heritage Society would seek grants and donations to restore the Town Hall building for museum use.
From KSUT, I'm Victor Locke.
