MOUNT VERNON — Knox Community Hospital opened the doors of the newly-renovated Hull Business Center, 133 S. Main St., Tuesday, letting the public see the renovation that has transformed the old commercial building into a modern office facility.
The renovation blends the old and the new. Exposed brick walls and original wood floors preserve the history of the building, while the office areas are set up for modern office needs.
Items found in the renovation process provide decorations on each floor, such as the enlargement of a copy of A. Banning Norton’s Daily True Whig from Nov. 25, 1853; posters promoting the sale of hats and caps by W. L. King; and even a Knox Auto Theatre sign.
Glass bottles and other items found during the renovation are displayed at various locations.
