North Street building crumbles in Marshall (Updated at 9:42 a.m. Thursday)

Thursday, June 15, 2017
Rubble is scattered across a lot and into West North Street Thursday, June 15, after a structure collapsed sometime early that morning or the previous night. At 7 a.m. Thursday, the Marshall fire chief, city code official and several Marshall Municipal Utilities officials were on site surveying the damage and taping off the area for safety. The collapsed structure was attached to the old Masonic Lodge building (the brick building still standing), which lost its rear wall and floor on Feb. 2. It appears the masonic lodge’s west wall collapsed as well, possibly causing the structure, also known as the "Jacobi Building" to fall. There is now a large hole where the brick wall previously boasted an old “Coca-Cola” painted advertisement.

  • A fitting metaphor for Marshall; crumbling and falling apart.
