More storefronts in Athens, West Virginia

More storefronts in Athens, West Virginia
Yet another photograph of yet more stately small-town storefronts that are no longer. Together with the tacky fake-stone-facade expansion at right, the building at left had actually managed to hang on to life and house a number of divergent businesses in just the previous 15 years alone: A fitness center, a furniture store, and an auction house, to name a few. Some of the upper-story space had been used as apartments as recently as the 2000s.

Unfortunately, shortly after being vacated once and for all, both buildings fell into disrepair and were demolished in (I believe) early 2007.
