    Miles Thomas House Dollar General

    The Victorian 1870s-era Miles Thomas House at 3847 Main St. in Warrensburg sits on the lot where a 9,100 square-feet Dollar General Store is to be built if a developer’s plans become reality. Several local citizens are seeking an interpretation of the town zoning laws from the Warrensburg Zoning Board of Appeals, and a public hearing has been scheduled on the issue for 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 25 at the town hall — and citizens interested in the town’s future are urged to attend.

    Warrensburg Planning board members John Fanchini and Rich Larkin (foregound) listen to Plattsburgh engineer James Abdallah explain site plans for a Dollar General store to be developed on Main Street where the historic Miles Thomas House is now situated. News of the proposed demolition of the home prompted the largest turnout in recent history for a town meeting — and many of the local residents suggested the store be situated on an empty lot farther north on Main Street — outside the registered historic district.

    The Miles Thomas House, listed on the National Register of Historic Places and reputed to be a stop on the Underground Railroad in the mid-1800s — is to be demolished and replaced by a Dollar General store, if a developer’s plans become reality.
