Save 1790 Coogler-Meetze House
The Cooger- Meetze house, built in 1790 is a perfectly restored house located in Lexington South Carolina, that is in danger of being destroyed. This house is historically important to this area because it is one of the few bridges of the past that connects us the present and is an important part of the future of Lexington County. It was built by the son of Matthew Kugler (Cooler) an Dutch Fork immigrant who came over from Germany in 1752. It is not good for our town, when perfectly restored historical houses are destroyed and bulldozed. Progress should incorporate and help preserve history of an area, to preserve the soul of our town of Lexington, South Carolina. It would be a tragedy to see 220 years of our history demolished in minutes. The developer Maxwell group, who is is building Wellmore of Lexington, want the house removed from the property and the house is free to who ever can pay movers to move the house to another piece of property.
