Preservation Reconnaissance: The Doors

Getting the doors right at 260 Warren Street took a lot of patience and attention and persistence on the part of the Historic Preservation Commission, and Gossips covered the whole prolonged process. In the end, it was this historic photo from the Evelyn and Robert Monthie Slide Collection at the Columbia County Historical Society that guided the accurate reproduction of the doors.

The care given to the doors of this significant historic building at a major gateway to our city is why alarms were raised when the doors disappeared yesterday. Gossips received word of the missing doors early this morning.

Rushing to the scene, Gossips discovered that the doors had been removed so that they could be painted black, and today they were being reinstalled.


Now that the doors are back in place, we eagerly await the wine bar that's supposed to open there.
