House Coming Down in Martinsburg
January 14, 2021
Workers for Martinsburg-based T L. Long Excavating begin the demolition of a Martinsburg home on the corner of Walnut and Allegheny streets on Monday, Jan. 11. Workers began with the garage behind the house.
W. Gene Henry of Martinsburg donated money to the Borough of Martinsburg to make the purchase for the house. Henry wanted to have the house on the corner demolished so the area is not so congested with traffic and to make the municipal building that he built in 2011 more visible from the road. Henry will donate the lot to the borough. The total cost was $210,000 – $200,000 for the purchase of the house and $10,000 for the demolition.
