The demolition by Craig Randall is finished. Except for some support structures and a few other odds and ends, both buildings are completely gutted.
Here is a photo gallery of what the buildings look like now. We’re still inserting labels though, so give us a little time to finish up on those.
Inside the hardware store, you’ll see a couple of “hanging” walls. These walls are original to the building (1895) and separated the grocery store in back from the dry goods store in front. The boards are tongue and groove, and have “cut” nails in them. The walls are still there for now, as they are part of a support structure holding the roof in place.
