LeRoy’s Wiss Hotel is worth saving.
That’s the conclusion of an architect brought in by community members in LeRoy to study the 200 year old building.
Architect Rick Hauser from Perry sees a value in the old structure:
"This building (The Wiss) has the opportunity to be a catalyst for downtown revitalization. It's clearly a symbol and it holds a very important location in downtown. It defines the corner of the intact portion of Main St.it could add commercial businesses and nice quality apartments."
The Village of LeRoy owns the building.
Hauser estimates it would cost a million dollars to make the building viable but suggested it be done with a combination of grants, loans and individual investors.
