Woodstock Times – 10.6.13 – by Violet Snow – Demolition of the interior began on September 23rd. The project is budgeted at $800,000 with $120,000 yet to be fund raised.
“A week into demolition the interior was already stripped down, the dividing walls and the old staircase removed. Holes and charred beams were visible in the back wall, where the fire had started. Roberts and his employees were figuring out how to remove another find from the attic — a heavy steel contraption believed to be a coffin lift, a relic from the days when the building served as a funeral parlor.”
