**Note: Upon filing the nomination
application, the property owner and local officials would be
notified by SHPO of the intent to nominate, and public comment
would be solicited. The owner of private property is given an
opportunity to agree with, or object to, the nomination. If the
owner of this property objects to the nomination, the historic
property cannot be listed in the National Register.
NY SHPO's policy states that owners
support is required prior to submitting an application. Pursuing
the nomination, regardless of owners support, would possibly
mandate a review and subsequent determination, however the
absence of owner support would preclude the listing.
requests to Alan Gerry for his support were never realized.
