Now You See It - Now You Don't
Tuesday - August 16: It only took one day for demolition company X-treme Trucking to bring it down. The building pictured here was located at 13th & Main St in Wellsville. It was last used as the home of the internet broadcasting station wkmxlive. They are the ones that originally began broadcasting the Wellville High School sports.
Neighbors tell us it was originally the home of the Venetian Cafe. That was before our time but before the broadcasting station we recall it being a State Liquor Store and later on a pizza shop. Up until it was condemned there were apartments rented on the second floor.
WFD Chief Bill Smith tells us that last winter a truck hit a couple of vehicles parked there before hitting the building itself. That accident cause structural damage. It you look closely at the first picture you can see a gaping space between the uptown side wall and the front. With that side wall on the right coming away from the building it was determined to be unsafe.
There will be no interruption with broadcasting WHS games. Their operation is mostly mobile except for the home location which was changed at the beginning of last season.
