Cheshire OKs demolition of 200-year-old inn

The board this week approved a nearly $50,000 contract for the demolition of the Cheshire Inn that waits the approval of town meeting next month. Work is expected to start as soon as approval is granted.

The North Adams Transcript reports that the inn built in the 1790s was once one of the grandest buildings in town, but is now in such poor shape that a hard hat is required just to enter it.

The town seized it from the previous owner in 2011. The town thought of selling it, but determined the best option was tearing it down. The future of the site is to be determined.
