Local History



The Historic Landmarks Commission will be recommending that the Thies House and the 2.7 acres of land surrounding it be designated as a historic landmark. City Council will decide this issue on October 26th. The purpose of designation is not to prevent development. The purpose is to manage development so that the historic character of the Thies House can be preserved. Lindsay Daniel, Chairman of the Commission, has developed a plan which would allow Childress Klein, the developer, to place an Eckerds Drugstore on the site. This plan in no way represents an official plan approved by the Historic Landmarks Commission nor suggests that the Landmarks Commission would approve it.
