Supporters of the oldest house in Stamford are planning a candlelight New Year's celebration there to protest the city's plans to move it away.
Built in 1699, the Hoyt-Barnum House on Bedford Street is the last colonial-era house in the city, according to historians. But it sits on land the city recently bought to build a new police headquarters.
Supporters of the house say that moving it could damage it, and would cause it to lose its designation as a site on the National Register of Historic Places.
