Along with construction of new retail space, the project also includes moving the original Ingersoll Home to a back portion of the land that's away from the heavily trafficked intersection of Balltown Road and State Street. The proposed move has been staunchly opposed each step of the way by a group of preservationists calling themselves the Friends of Stanford Home. Including members from several communities outside Niskayuna, the group is named after a prominent family that once owned Ingersoll Home. Along with speaking out at town and planning board meetings, the group has approached Attorney General and Governor-elect Eliot Spitzer's office, seeking to block the sale of the historic building. Spitzer's office has declined to intervene in the process. ""
