Yes, it's historic, but what do we do with it?

MEDWAY

What should be done with the A.P. Thayer House? That is the question that town officials in Medway want answered.

Sealed bids are due at the end of next month for a professional assessment of the condition and potential uses of the historic house at 2B Oak Street.

The house, built in 1852, is one of the town's oldest; it was saved from destruction and taken by eminent domain in 2004.

Town Meeting approved a final, out-of-court settlement with the former owner last month for the approximately 3-acre property and buildings.

Now the town's Historical Commission is looking for a detailed report to be completed by April 30.

In recent months, the Community Preservation Committee also polled town organizations and departments for suggested uses of the property.
