A very sad day for all that believe that special efforts must be made to preserve the historic sites in the Lehigh Valley and through out the United States. What has taken place in Dorneyville is criminal. It is obvious that Cedar Fair management knew that the destruction of this historic grist mill would be contoversial and thus, they destroyed it without fanfair and without notice. Once it is gone, it is gone and there is nothing we can do about it. It is too late for this grist mill, but what historic site will be next to fall to progress? I am not at all sure that this event qualifies as progress. As I indicated above, I would classify it as criminal, but unfortunately, no laws were broken; the only thing broken in this instance was my heart.
