ALBERTON -- Just a few months after it was being considered for a range of services including student apartments, heated storage units and even a restaurant, the old Maplewood Manor in Alberton is in the final stages of demolition.

The manor property had come up for discussion during the regular monthly meeting of Alberton Town Council in September with councillors deciding to notify government it was interested in having the vacant building developed. Eight days later, however, that motion was overturned on a 4-3 vote with council voting to ask the provincial government to have the 46 year-old building demolished.

The day after Council voted for demolition, a Huntley resident, who had an offer in to buy the building, was advised that government was no longer considering his offer.

The provincial government awarded the demolition contract to Kildare Construction and work at tearing down the building started January 6.

Once all the building material has been removed, the site will be leveled off and seeded out by spring.
