KATONAH, N.Y. – Lawyers for Stepping Stones, the former home of the couple who founded Alcoholics Anonymous, have accused the Town of Bedford of discrimination, according to a report by lohud.com.

The house, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, is open for tours and also hosts an annual picnic.

Stepping Stones is arguing that its mission is being compromised by an onerous permit process and, furthermore, it is deliberately being treated differently than other nonprofits, such as the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts, the lohud.com story said.

The town said every charitable group must have a special permit, lohud.com reported.
