The owner of the Bull Tavern says he has lost everything as his building has been deemed unsafe and he has no insurance after the West Main Street structure began falling apart during a wind storm earlier this week.
Brian Kroft is a retired soldier and says he doesn't have the resources to repair the building, which will come to the ground on Friday. I presume the City will pay for the demolition, since the situation is dangerous and has resulted in the closure of the street.
Whatever the specifics, it's always sad to see a small business owner suffer this fate.
The building has housed taverns for years including the Turf Club and JR's.
