Historic Wawbeek buildings to be torn down

Listen to this story
Two historic buildings from the former Wawbeek Resort on Upper Saranac Lake will be coming down. An attorney representing the owners has confirmed that the new owners of the property turned down two proposals to move the buildings. Preservationists have argued that the buildings constitute a unique piece of 19th century architectural history. The former resort was operated as an inn and restaurant until last fall when it was sold to the Southern California couple for $6.25 million. Martha Foley talks with reporter Jacob Resneck, who's been following this story.
