Grant to aid demolition of century-old Blanchardville building
The downtown Blanchardville building slated to be torn down in coming months is owned by Loves Park, Illinois, resident Joshua Schmit. The village sought legal action against Schmit and obtained a court order in early 2015 to knock down the structure that has stood for more than a century. (Times photo: Marissa Weiher)
A downtown building that has been a blight to the village for at least half a decade was the background of an event Wednesday to announce that Blanchardville received a grant of more than $83,000 from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation.
