SO what is up with that?

Here is some background about the freight building in the form of an article I posted on March 17, 2004, when the building burned down: Historic Depot Freight Building Fire

Which really just leaves a bunch of unanswered questions. Who owns the property? Is there even any hope of restoring the building? How can the City ignore what has become not just an eyesore, but an extremely dangerous attractive nuisance? (There was a death in the building recently, about 2 years ago, that was investigated as a suicide.) Early Works recently indicated that funding has been received in order to do major renovations to Constitution Hall Park, but no mention of the Historic Huntsville Freight Building was made.

Looking at the slide show, I’d say it’s time for Mayor Tommy Battle to be responsible for a change. Mayor Battle, Tear Down That Building!
