    Hello! Just wanted to give you further explanation if you’re interested. Bob Rainey, as the owner, made the tough decision to tear down the beloved old buildings. 20 years ago, he made a strong effort to try to get businesses to come in and set up shop in the buildings. He has tried to raise money to refurbish them, but they were way beyond repair and were a real danger to the community. Since tearing them down, he saved all the windows, and valuables inside. He has distributed the old bricks back to the community to whoever wants them. In fact, a new Bronwood house is being built entire from these bricks. How cool is that? He has also located the family members of the past deceased owners and redistributed items back to them. It is sad to see them go, but understand the situation was delt with as best as he saw fit.
