Stay of Execution for Historic House

Tara and Daniel Whiting have withdrawn their application to the West Tisbury historic district commission to demolish the Old Parsonage house.

On Wednesday historic district commission chairman Sean Conley said his board had received an e-mail from the Whitings earlier in the week effectively ending their pursuit of a demolition permit.

“It looks like Tara is pursuing something else besides demolition, which is great,” Mr. Conley said.
