Crews are set to demolish the old Knox theater and the structure that formerly housed the Starke County Economic Development Foundation’s office.
The demolition will begin at 6:30 a.m. today at 2 and 4 N. Main Street in Knox. Knox Mayor Rick Chambers told WKVI that crews will take one day to completely knock down the building and they will take three days to remove the rubble.
A company removed items from the two buildings last year and a history of the buildings was submitted to the Starke County Museum. The building has been boarded up to keep residents out of the building for safety reasons.
Mayor Chambers asks that you take caution around the area of Lake and Main Streets this week as the demolition and clean-up takes place.
