But why couldn’t any of the historic structural items have been saved? We live in a throw away society. When will some of the junky buildings on main street be torn down?

They have been way to nice in my book, they have been working with the owner for 17 years….it should have been torn down 15 years ago Report Reply +2 Vote up Vote down wellington resident · 341 weeks ago Sure don’t see how its the fault of the city. They tried for years to get the owner to fix that place up. Its sad to see it goes, it was a beautiful home and a part of Wellington history.
