DEEP RIVER: There's Character In Those Old Buildings

What's happening to Deep River Center? Has anyone noticed that, compared to our neighboring towns, we are built for the ages? We have more public buildings built with stone than Chester or Essex. Full Story

I agree 100% with the article. The charm is fading and the benefits are slim. There are no great tax benefits to losing what is our own.

You guys are crazy. All of the improvements to the Deep River downtown look great! I could probably do without a Dunkin' Donuts, but how great is the new gas station? And Adams, don't even get me started: such great produce there!

Old historic buildings are meant to last for hundreds of years. But, with that respect noted, they do not fit into today's business endeavors. Today is modern, air conditioning, heating systems and lighting. These old buildings would need major overhauls and at today's prices, who could afford it. They may lean towards college dorms or a furniture gallery. but as far as upbeat, they had their day. ROCK ON!
