Knox Heritage was never contacted by Fort Sanders Regional Hospital regarding architectural salvage from these two houses and we will not accept it since we strongly disagree with the hospital's demolition of the houses. We did speak with the daughter of one of the property owners to determine if Knox Heritage could purchase the property to save it from demolition. She indicated that was not possible because her mother had already signed a sales contract with Fort Sanders Hospital. She hated to see the entire house go to the landfill, but that is what will happen now.
Knox Heritage does not accept architectural salvage from historic properties that could have and should have been saved. These houses should have been preserved and the hospital should stop its continuing expansion into the surrounding historic neighborhood. It continues to do so at its peril and the peril of all neighborhood stakeholders. The damage done to the integrity of the neighborhood will cause serious, long-term negative impacts for all residents - the hospitals, the other businesses and the residents.
