The recent destruction of the ell on Freeport's historic Mitchell House has ener
The recent destruction of the ell on Freeport's historic Mitchell House has energized the Freeport Historical Society to attempt to raise awareness and sensitivity to the town's historical resources Society officials believe the town's existing Design Review Ordinance should be strengtened -- At present, the ordinance protects entire buildings from being demolished without notification, but not parts of them -- The Society had no notice that the ell on the 300-year-old Mitchell was about to be destroyed to make way for a take-out pizza parlor With a related story about the resignations of Cynthia Orcutt and W Brian Haddock from the Design Review Board -- Orcutt resigned for a perceived conflict of interest and Haddock in protest for the way the Code Enforcement Officer Frederick Reeder has interpreted the Design review ordinance
