NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The demolition of Fort Nashborough is well underway at the historical site along the Cumberland River.

The site is a representation of a fort built by some of Nashville’s settlers and has been a destination for generations of Middle Tennessee students. The current facility was built in the early 1960s, while the first representation of Fort Nashborough was put up in 1930.

The Tennessean (https://tnne.ws/1QIAEDK ) reports that Metro plans to reconstruct a more contemporary replacement may not happen until 2017.

The original dates for demolition and reopening were delayed in order to fold the $1 million project into Mayor Karl Dean’s now-defeated $100 million flood wall and protection plan.
