The Foundation joined with other preservationists to oppose a zoning change that would have permitted subdividing the building into 23 apartments.

Schenectady’s Zoning Board of Appeals denied the application.

Within a week, the Inn was purchased by a private developer who plans to retain its function as a historic inn.

Schenectady Heritage Foundation advocates for historic preservation in a variety of ways. We support:

We work with appropriate government agencies and non-government organizations:

We comment at public hearings, correspond with government groups, write comments for Environmental Impact Statements, and closely follow applications to the City of Schenectady’s Historic District Commission. We also write opinion pieces for various media, comment on various development projects and/or government policies, and initiate or join legal action when warranted.
