GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) - The home once belonging to one of Greenwich’s oldest families is no longer standing.

The Greenwich Time reports (http://bit.ly/1cHQGLl) the roughly 6,000-square-foot John Knapp House was demolished to make room for a nearly 11,000-square-foot home with six bedrooms.

Numerous Knapp family members have lived in the house.

The Knapp House was the former home of Ambassador Albert Sherer. But in November 2014, the town’s Planning and Zoning Commission approved site plans submitted by the Sherer Family Limited Partnership and the Kaali-Nagy Company.

Officials with the Greenwich Preservation Trust say they’re researching preservation regulations adopted by other communities to save old homes and businesses. They want to make preservation financially viable.

They say they’re also creating a handbook promoting public education on the goals of preservation and its benefits.
