|The very front has been removed - it was originally a (wooden) tavern|
|Demolition started in the center section. |
The front building (left) was originally 2 stories but a third was later added.
You can see the various bricks and sections to the building.
Most recently the Castile Community Club bought the 5 acre parcel with plans to remove the remaining buildings and build a new community center. The graceful old pool has already been backfilled, old architectural elements were salvaged, the asbestos was removed and the demolition finally began this week. Rumor has it that the site will be cleared in only 2 weeks and some kind of new building will be constructed by summer's end.
|Cordelia's legacy lives on in the Cordelia A Greene Library, despite the demolition across Main Street.|
