This morning, the board of selectmen approved a lease for the Kemper Gunn house. The vote was unanimous: 3-0.
Soon it will move across Elm Street, to the Baldwin parking lot. The Y will already have left, and the renovation/reconstruction/renaissance of Church Lane will begin.
Bedford Square will become a reality. Kemper Gunn will be leased to non-chain outlets.
Downtown will never look or be the same.
In a very good way.
