Greenville College leveled two houses and a shed this week after completing the necessary notifications and permits in February.
The first house to go was located at 304 E. College Avenue and served as student housing until 2013 when the school opted to house students elsewhere due to expenses associated with necessary updates. The college will use the property as green space until another use is identified.
The second house at 703 N. Elm Street was gifted to the college with the intent of tearing it down to provide a more attractive space for the school and community. The City of Greenville agreed to remove liens against the house if the college demolished it before April 1.
A shed was also leveled behind a house at 416 N. Elm Street to create additional parking for athletic events.
