Front of Building Saved in Ardmore

9-10-04 - An historic building that collapsed almost two weeks ago in downtown Ardmore will be rebuilt with its original façade intact.

A wall collapsed at the building at the corner of “A” and Main Street last month – the second time it had suffered a wall collapse in two years. A structural engineer surveyed the damage and said the façade is sturdy enough to stand.

He says the first and second floors along with the roof act as a strong enough brace to keep the building from falling inward.

The city says they will keep that part of the intersection blocked off until the building is restored.
