Hollymead Stone House Demolished

Remember the stone house surrounded by the muck of development at Hollymead that disappeared last week? Jeremy Borden explains what happened in today’s Progress. It turns out that Wendell Wood (who you know for his sweetheart deal with NGIC) has owned the 1920s house for 35 years now, and he’s rented it out to tenants over that time. Wood found that the house couldn’t be moved, so he simply tore it down last week. He expressed surprise that people were so interested in the house (moreso than in the development), but the rumors about the house show that Charlottesvillians root for preservation in the face of development. Wendell Wood, of all people, should know that.
