Falls councilman seeks suggestions on uses for DeVeaux Carriage House remains

Niagara Falls Councilman William Kennedy II wants suggestions from his constituents on what to do with the bricks and other debris left over from the state's demolition last week of the 155-year-old carriage house in DeVeaux Woods State Park.

The building was part of the former DeVeaux School, later a Niagara University auxiliary campus. It was torn down after the long-vacant building's roof collapsed in a recent windstorm, Kennedy said Friday.

So far, building a replica on the site is "the overwhelming favorite."

Other ideas include using the bricks in a "Welcome to DeVeaux" sign.

Kennedy said the decision on what to do with the bricks is up to State Parks, whose spokeswoman did not return calls seeking comment.

Suggestions may be sent to william.kennedy@niagarafallsny.gov.
