Historic Clifton Home Could Be Torn Down

From today's Fairfax Extra:


The Clifton Town Council is scheduled Tuesday to consider a request to tear down a historic home that was built shortly after the end of the Civil War.

Preservation and history enthusiasts are encouraging the council to require the developer, Marcus and Colette Silva to incorporate as many of the interior and exterior elements of the house as possible in the new building.

The Hetzel House, at 7151 Pendelton St. in the town's historic district, was built in1870. It is a gabled-front-and-wing structure with a metal seamed roof. No one has lived there for 15 years, and the Silvas want to build a new home on the site.

The 7 p.m. council meeting is at the Town Meeting Hall, 12641 Chapel. Rd.
