“They painted over all the amazing quotes and phrases like “bienvenu a shaw” and I am bummed! That building brightened my day whenever I drove past. I am glad that it will hopefully be something but sad it will no longer have the same local flavor.”

Here’s what part of it used to look like. If this is a sign that the building will become an actually business or home than I’ll be pretty excited but if it remains vacant then I think this is a tragedy.
