Fate of White Plains landmark in jeopardy
A historical landmark's fate in the heart of Westchester County is in jeopardy.
The Miller House on 140 Virginia Road, in North White Plains, has been standing since the 18th century and although mangled, it has become a significant part of White Plains history.
Kerri Kazak, president of the nonprofit group "Friends of Miller House," explains how it would be difficult to part with the house considering the county has owned the home since the early 1900s. Legislators say they are going to work together to come up with the best option to preserve the historic foundation.
"It needs to be fixed so it can go back to its prior role as an educational asset for the people of this county," says Legislator MaryJane Shimsky.
Shimksy says a study from a few years ago estimates it would cost around $1.3 million to move and repair the house.
News 12 has tried reaching out to County Executive Rob Astorino's office to see why the county hasn't fixed the home sooner, but no calls have been returned.
