This story makes me ill: "Easement, perhaps a few homes planned for Civil War era fort."
Just a few multimilliondollar homes here and there on or about a fort in great shape. An exclusive island with a unique history. And a socially-responsible easement to preserve it just the way it was the day the last home was built. I think the conservationists will get behind that.
And did we mention that multimilliondollar home owners tend to not invite the general public to tromp around their historic estates? So much the better to preserve the unique charm of the site!
The Civil War Preservation Trust created this paradigm. This Fort Pemberton page was taken out of CWPT's playbook.
The preservation disaster continues. Unlike natural disasters, this one has leadership.
