Town officials are asking for public input on what to do with a historic home that has been lifted from the grounds of a new Amazon site.
The Arnott-Haber house was built in 1820. In October, the town lifted and moved the home from the new entrance to an Amazon warehouse off routes 17 K and 747.
News 12 is told Amazon agreed to preserve and donate the property, rather than demolishing it upon purchase.
"Preserving history in the Town of Montgomery is so important to me and so many residents in Montgomery and to be able to take a piece of our history and also create an adaptive reuse with a public benefit is really exciting,” says Montgomery Supervisor Brian Maher.
The Arnott-Haber house was first inhabited by farmer James Arnott. It remained family-owned until the 1930s.
The residence has remained vacant for the past 20 years.
