So many memories growing up in house set to be razed

To the Editor:

I grew up in the house that is set to be razed at 250 Gulf Street, built in the 1700s.

My parents bought the house in 1950 or 1951, and sold it in 1974. As was the custom in colonial days, several generations  resided in this house: My grandmother, parents, siblings and several cousins.

It is one of six Dutch Colonials in Milford and deserves to be preserved.

I passed this new about “notice of demolish” to my good friend who grew up down the street and she said, “What a shame, so many memories.”

I say that about when we grew up. What about the 200 years before that?
