Preservation efforts appreciated

April 19, 2013 

Kudos to the Belleville Historical Society for their efforts to save Belleville's first train depot. Our community has already lost too many historic buildings.

European cities have preserved much older buildings than this one, built around 1870.

Let's all work together to save this "grand old lady."

After all, once it's demolished, it's gone forever.
