VELVA, N.D. (AP) - A historic building along Main Street in Velva is being demolished this week.

KXMC-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2ufr2af ) that the 112-year-old Welo Building had housed everything from a barber shop to an opera house. School graduation ceremonies were even held there at one time.

The city has owned the now-abandoned building for some time and paid almost $100,000 to have it demolished. Resident Maryliz Davis says it’s bittersweet.
