The fate of Hillsborough’s Colonial Inn could be decided on Wednesday.

That’s when the town’s Historic District Commission meets to consider a request for demolition from the building’s owner, Francis Henry.

The building at 153 West King Street is 175 years old, but it’s sat in disrepair for years. Henry bought the property in 2001.

The meeting will take place at 7:00 Wednesday evening at the Town Barn. Some residents are planning to gather on the lawn in front at 6:30 for a “lawn party” in support of the building.

Hillsborough mayor Tom Stevens joined WCHL’s Aaron Keck on the Monday afternoon news to discuss the issue – as well as the procedure that the commission will use to make its decision.
