The shed is among five buildings that comprise the last traditional smoked-herring facility in the U.S., and an organization called Lubec Landmarks has worked for almost 25 years to preserve it. Lubec Landmarks President Rachel Rubeor said legal tangles, including salvage rights claims by some Canadian citizens, could doom the building.

Fort Vancouver National Historic Site

The Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, across the river from Portland, is a unique 200-acre cultural site in the Northwest with ties to the earliest days of settlement in the Oregon Territory. Since 2012, it’s also owned about 33 acres of former Department of Defense land that the National Park Service is now looking to redevelop into a “dynamic, sustainable public service campus.”

In an effort to revitalize the Tenney property on Marble Hill Road in Fayston as a working farm and forest in the Mad River Valley, Vermont Land Trust has contracted with Deconstruction Works to remove one of two farmhouses located on the property. Deconstruction Works is a team of deconstructionists specializing in the salvage and repurposing of the built environment. The team will carefully dismantle, salvage and repurpose components of the red farmhouse located at the top of Marble Hill Road. This undertaking is driven by the significant disrepair of the building and the financial burden that would be transferred to the next farm owner if it were left on the site.
