ERIE, Colo. (CBS4) – There’s a battle over the future of a historic grain mill in Erie.

A developer wants to destroy or move the Wise Homestead Grain Mill because it blocks a road that would need widening as part of a new neighborhood.

But people in the town are fighting to keep the mill where it is and get it on the National Register of Historic Places.

If that happens, a federal grant funding would open up to preserve the site.

Meetings are planned for this coming week to discuss the different options. The Erie Town Board will determine the fate of the historic Wise Homestead Grain Mill, at a meeting scheduled on June 27, 2017, 6:30 p.m
