Three track-hoes took down 100 N. Main St., Sunday morning, leveling a structure that dates back to the 1820s. The former location of the Knox County National Bank, organized by Henry B. Curtis in 1865, the building was demolished by Jeff Wintermute and United Aggregates Inc. Chestnut Street and North Main Street surrounding the building were closed during the demolition. The lot will be leveled off and graded. The building was purchased in December by Murray, Rauzi and Kidwell. Korey Kidwell told the News there are no definite plans for the property at this time.
