Don't know if this one can be saved, but the lady who owns the house next door to it is giving it her best shot. I think that some concern needs to be expressed by the public so that the planning commission won't think preservationists aren't paying attention, and they can chip away at historical sites a little at a time. :sad:

Wouldn't this be more appropriate (and get better exposure) in the battlefield preservation forum?

I agree. Even though this is regarding a "Field Hospital", it seems a better fit within the Preservation section. So, consider it done!
