The Edgemere Diner, an empty landmark on Route 20, may soon see new life or disappear altogether. The town owns the diner and must now determine what to do with it.
At issue? Some selectmen want to sell it, saying the town shouldn't be in the business of property ownership, according to board chairman John LeBeaux. Others view it as a piece of local history that needs to be preserved.
In 2003, the board voted against a proposal to place the building on the National Register of Historic Places. LeBeaux said he anticipates a vote on the issue at the board's next meeting at 7 p.m. Nov. 20.
