A historical pergola should be considered

To the Editor,

I read your article about the deterioration of the pergola in the center of town. As you know the town is sponsoring a walking tour of historical downtown Wilmington. More than 21 historical buildings have been identified and we boast eight of the 11 forms of known architecture. Perhaps a more historical pergola should be considered rather than make extensive and costly repairs to the present one. It would be nice to have a white one lighted at night where people could sit and enjoy the river as well.
