  I recently had a diner moved from Ohio to NY State (Gilbertsville, which
is about half way between Oneonta and Norwich)
  And the former owner wants to have it appraised for tax purposes.  I was
mistakingly told that a real estate agent could do the appraisal, but
recently found out I need a historical building appraisor.

Can anyone recommend someone in the area of (Binghamton, Oneonta,

  For background information, the diner was built by the Goodell Hardware
Company who went into the dining car(diners) business because another local
concern was doing so well (Ward & Dickinson).  This was in Silver Creek, NY
in the mid to late 1920's.   So far, only two of Goodell's diners have ever
been located.  The other was in Bath, NY as the Court House Diner and burnt
down in the 70's.  Thusly, this is the last of it's kind.  I saved it
because the owner wants to build a strip mall on the location, and being a
diner enthusiast, realized the significance.
  The diner is all wood.

Best Regards
