Six months. That's how much time the Darby Borough Historical Commission has to raise $75,000 to save Woodmount, a 250-year-old structure on Darby Terrace, according to John Haigis, the commission's chairman.
Haigis said that after a weekend meeting at Woodmount, Davoud Baravordeh, one of the property's owners, agreed to put off any demolition plans, giving the group six months to come up with the money and a plan to save the building.
Baravordeh confirmed in an email Monday that he would postpone demolition for at least six months.
Meanwhile, the borough council on Monday postponed a scheduled hearing on the fate of the building hours before it was to start.
