Description

Barry ended up in Saugerties because the real estate broker told him he couldn't afford Woodstock. He found a run-down farm house with loads of historical character and slowly brought it back to life. He didn't stop there; he's been integral to the development of the Historic Preservation Commission and in order to identify and designate historical structures in the area. We learn about the efforts to preserve the Winston Farm and importance of the designation of the Synder Farm. Barry also touches on recent efforts to develop a historical structures map and make LED signs and power structures confined to industrial zones. 12 down, 155 to go.
