Hunterdon Theater To Be Razed?

FLEMINTON, NJ — The former Hunterdon Theater building in Flemington might be razed according to a Hunterdon County Democrat article. On October 5, Walgreen’s will propose a new building on the site before the town’s planning commission. The Hunterdon closed September 16, 1993 and was renovated into Coat World. The building has been vacant for several years. Potentially, the Church Street landmark could be restored to its former use.

I don’t get it. The building is in perfect condition and could easily be converted to a drug store.

Somebody PLEASE rescue this beautiful building – it is in wonderful condition since it was remodeled about 10 years ago before becoming Coat World (yuk). The Flemington area is ripe for an art cinema or, even more so, a LIVE PERFORMANCE SPACE. This building sits at the gateway to Flemington. To allow it to become a Walgreen’s (directly facing and Eckerd’s) would be absolutely CRIMINAL! Anyone with some money to invest PLEASE HELP!!!! You would be an absolute HERO to this community and I am sure if you do the market research you will see that this would be a highly profitable venture. The cronies running this town are allowing it to turn into every other highway town bit by bit, for their own profit. PLEASE is there ANYONE out there who can intervene before this heartbreaking loss takes place???
