They want to save our “dying town” by demolishing our beautiful historical buildings and replacing them with ones that will make Flemington lose its authentic, Victorian small town character.
One of the endangered buildings in Flemington, NJ is the Union Hotel, the historic venue where the prosecutors and journalists stayed during the Charles Lindbergh Baby Kidnapping case held at the courthouse directly across from it. The case later came to be known as “The Trial of the Century.”
This beautiful grand hotel has been a busy gathering place through the years. Unfortunately, it has been neglected and is now considered too expensive to “restore” and “too far gone” to be saved.
We want to see the Union Hotel, an important historical landmark, remain standing and restored to its former glory just like the Stangl Pottery, another historical building that has been saved, successfully rebuilt and become a lively part of our town again.
Please sign the petition to save the Union Hotel, our history, and the beauty and charm of our unique town. We believe Flemington can be developed and revitalized without destroying our historic and cultural heritage.
You can find more information in the following links about the history of four Flemington buildings that are currently facing the threat of demolition:
Once the Union Hotel and the other three historic Flemington buildings are demolished, there will be no returning. An important part of our history and cultural heritage will have disappeared forever.
(It’s totally free to sign the petition. All we need is your name and electronic signature on petitions.com you can reach using the link above.)
