Street. After the loss of the John Frost house a few of us asked the town of Eliot if they would provide us notice when an old property is going to be demolished so that we may try to contact the owner or developer to attempt a last recording of the structural, architectural, and family history of a property that will soon cease to exist in our town. Not long after we took pictures of what remained of Clover Farm, the property was bulldozed to make way for a new development. I personally don't understand it. I love old houses. I would love to see new developments retain some of the old structures and property features if it is feasible. I would much rather live in a place that had preserved real history, than anywhere where history was sterilized and paved over, or worse, invented. I have to believe I am not alone.
