Historic Tifton building demolished

August 22, 2002

Tifton- There's a pile of rubble where a law enforcement and welcome center will soon be in Tifton.

Some people were clearing the way brick by brick Thursday, collecting artifacts from what was Tifton's first ever brick building built in the 1800s at the corner of Commerce and 5th Streets.

The city was also filling large trucks with debris of the building that had been Able Vacuum, Burns Garage and Batts Glass in recent years.

The $4.5 million law enforcement center is being built as part of Tifton's Main Street downtown development program.
