Marshall Buildings Come Crumbling Down

ConAgra demolished four buildings within two city blocks, including Marshall Lumber Company, Thompson's Service Station and the building that adjoins it and Burkhart Electric.

ConAgra purchased the property to allow Marshall's facility to expand if necessary since the building was essentially land locked. ConAgra officials said the reason of demolition was the deteriorating properties.

The demolition by Brown Construction of Gilliam began first part of February 2008.
