Yesterday afternoon I noticed that equipment had been moved into position near the old Second Ward School to get ready to demolish the empty green house beside it on Second Avenue.
This morning I saw that the house had already been brought down.
This is part of a very positive development for Tarentum. The former school building was sold last month to Rabkin Dermatopathology Laboratory.
The vacant house was purchased for demolition so that the laboratory would have adequate parking, always at a premium in Tarentum.
So Tarentum has a new business coming to town, and one that may generate some medical synergy with the presence of Blackburn's Physicians Pharmacy. Tarentum is not just a town with a number of doctor's offices, but it is a town to which doctors look for a number of needed services.
And there is now one less vacant house in town.
