133-Year-Old Main Street Building In Bethlehem Headed For Demolition
A 133-year-old building in Bethlehem is headed for demolition after heavy rain collapsed part of it last fall.
The Main Street building, which has been called the Summit Building or the Cruft Block, housed a post office, jail, library, ballroom, general store, pizza parlor, and newspaper offices, among other businesses, throughout the years. The four-story building has been vacant in recent years.
When the building partially collapsed, the town issued an emergency demolition order and collapsed the building onto the first floor.
The Caledonian Record reports the select board awarded a demolition contract to Spears Brothers of Laconia on Friday for $23,600. A hearing is scheduled for July 10.
