Historic Designation

The recent change in administration is likely to revive interest in high speed rail.  Therefore we need to keep the “No High Speed Rail” project active.

One reason for opposing a third track through the town of Ashland is that it would damage the historic properties that are located on or near the tracks. Attached is a copy of a letter that I received from the Virginia Department of Historic Resources  to do with placing the Macmurdo House on the National Register of Historic Places. I replied expressing my strong support for the proposal.

I urge others to do the same.
