Demolition work is scheduled to start this week on the historic Hays Opera House.
Midland Wrecking Inc. will begin setting up traffic control around the historic building on Monday. The Hays Daily News reports that crews expect to have the building demolished within about three days.
Wood and other miscellaneous debris will be hauled to the Ellis County landfill, but stone and concrete will go to a private salvage site.
The Opera House was built in the 1870s and is owned by a group that has restored many of the buildings in downtown Hays. But stones have fallen from the building recently, prompting the city to move forward with condemnation.
