Sussex's Mindemann home could be saved, moved

Aug. 11, 2014

Sussex — The Betty Mindemann home in downtown Sussex has been sold to the village of Sussex. The site, located between the Pauline Haass Public Library and the current village hall, will likely be used for a new village hall complex.

Village Administrator Jeremy Smith told Mindemann last week that the village is receptive to proposals to move the home off the site. According to Mindemann, this offer, which has to be finalized through negotiations with the village, could also include the three-stall garage and storage shed.

The 97-year-old home underwent a massive remodeling in the early 2000s; the garage and storage shed are both a little more than 12 years old.

Mindemann has purchased a condominium in Sussex and will move into it as soon as it is ready.

The gazebo to the east of the house will be moved to Mindemann's son's home, so it will not be available to anyone who wishes to save the other structures.

The last time a prominent Sussex home was saved was in 1983 when the massive Wintermute/Edwards home was saved by Don Holt and his daughter, Diane. It was moved from the across the street from the Mindemann home to a site in the valley of Silver Spring Drive, near the Sussex BP gas station.
