Compress District Update!

Say goodbye to this impressive cotton compress building in our Depot-Compress Historic District.
The first stage of demolition is underway.

If you come by to check it out PLEASE be safe. Do not stray from the road because:
1. The compress is not safe (unstable) and
2. It is now an active construction site.

I will miss seeing this building every day but I'm glad the compress survived for at least 126 birthdays!
Hopefully, one wall will be preserved to honor the compress building's contribution to our city.
