Coming down

Tuesday, September 9, 2008

Construction crews began tearing down the building that once housed Sherwin Williams, in an area near 630 East National Ave., Tuesday morning. The building was vacated by the paint store in the fall of 2006.

Is there going to be anything interesting to look at on Hwy 40? Jeez! What is the historical society doing? These buildings can be restored and reused for new business. Brazil is on its way to destroying all the history that remains. I am so happy I don't live there anymore.

I am so happy to see this eyesore removed and the new coming soon. Brazil is looking toward a new future with a more appealling appearance.

Out with the old and in the new. Now maybe fifth third can build a nice new bank right there.

Didn't you hear??? We don't like history here. We want to demolish old schools and make a super school so why not rip all the old buildings down in town too? We need to get with it or we are going to be one big strip mall in this town!!!

I hardly think this building was of a historic or aesthetic value.

I wouldn't consider this building much history, however, I would consider the whole excercise a very large waste. Where are the environmentalists on this? This building could have been re-done instead of knocked down and dumped into a river somewhere or hauled to a landfill. Why don't we have the environmentalists picketing out front instead of trying to get us to buy CFLs and not buy SUVs. Amazing. Environmentally short sighted.
