The Lot Has Been Cleared

By Van Reech

Demolition is complete on the old West Bros. building on Polk St. The lot has been cleared of all debris and salvageable materials. 

Local businessman and entrepreneur, Reginald Partner, had purchased the NE corner of Washington and Polk St. After the City of Mansfield condemned the old West Bros. building he was able to purchase that adjoining lot. 

Mr. Partner tells The Journal that he plans on building an office complex on the corner with a parking lot on the recently cleared area.  We always dread losing part of history but that old building was becoming a hazard.
