Crews began tearing down a home Monday that dates back to before the Revolutionary War.
The home sits at 250 Gulf St. in Milford.
The Milford Preservation Trust had been trying to save the home, saying it is a historic building.
Milford Preservation Trust President Michele Kramer says the house was built in the late 1700s, and that houses like it are an important part of the city's history.
However, the owner has said she has been unable to find a buyer willing to preserve the home, and the cost of fixing it was too expensive. Local officials also say the 18th-century house was not in a historic district.
Kramer says losing such an important part of Milford's history is especially sad, since the city is celebrating its 375th anniversary.
News 12 reached out to the city for comment, but was told no one was available.
