Developers say historic Hendersonville building won't be torn down
Developers in Hendersonville want residents to know they're not tearing down a historic building.
Some residents wondered what was going on with the Wetmur Building since two cranes are working on the site.
The building's owners said they plan to not only save the building, but also renovate it. But they haven't determined what will go inside.
"The finished product of the building, we would like to replicate as it did in 1920, and we're asking the community to provide photographs and any historical documents that portray the building," developer Andrew Riddle said.
The 24,000-square foot building is two stories and was once a Ford dealership. It has also served as headquarters for the Henderson County School System.
Developers hope to have the renovation complete in a year.
