Ruhlman house may be sold

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — The planning board approved subdivision of a farmed parcel in the city on Monday.

Current owner Raymond Ruhlman and prospective owner Cynthia Gerspach requested subdivision of 325 Summit St., where an old stone house rests on 55 acres. The house and 14 acres will be separated from the larger parcel.

Gerspach intends to maintain an existing lease with a farmer who's using the rest of the acreage, Ruhlman's attorney, Andrew Vona, said Monday.

Gerspach, who did not attend the meeting, is said to be interested in restoring the antebellum stone mansion as a residence.
