Workers demolished a vacant old store adjacent to the Earle A. Rainwater Memorial Library in downtown Childersburg Monday, making room for a parking lot for the library. The city received a grant to tear down some buildings including old houses that were deemed hazardous. The library board had bought this building – vacant for several years and most recently a commercial electrician’s shop – and an old sign shop adjacent to it. The sign shop was torn down several months ago. The city’s old ice house will be the last building torn down in the demolition project.
