And that's that?

In 1989, those buildings were listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 2005, they were demolished and replaced by a supermarket.

Huh? They can just do that? So being declared "historical" doesn't offer some protection from obliteration? I'm disillusioned. Whenever I've read that, I've thought, "Great—now some greedy, short-sighted developer won't raze the place, and people generations from now will be able to appreciate it." Oh well. – AndyFielding (talk) 07:51, 8 February 2022 (UTC)Reply
