Construction Crews Demolish Historical Buildings in Boonville
BOONVILLE - Construction crews in Boonville demolished a group of buildings in the downtown historic district this morning. These buildings were formerly home to Stein House, The Sapphire Room, and Charlie Brown Insurance.
A fire destroyed this group of buildings about a year ago.
Construction crews tore down the buildings around ten o'clock Wednesday morning. Workers say the buildings fell the opposite way they expected during demolition, causing debris to cover the street.
Wednesday afternoon workers continued to clean up debris. It is unknown what the city plans to do with this vacant land.
