A Hellam Township zoning hearing board meeting was delayed 30 minutes Tuesday night and moved to the township building garage to accommodate the crowd that showed up to hear the fate of the historic Mifflin House property.

A real estate firm looking to develop the the property was appealing an earlier decision that blocked demolition of the house.

No decision was made after several hours of discussion. The board asked for additional information and indicated it would make its decision at the next board meeting.
