Demolition work begins in restoration of ‘Old 1895’

The preconstruction demolition phase of Vision Historic Preservation Foundation’s restoration of the 1895 Rockdale City Hall began April 19 with the removal of interior nonload-bearing walls. The foundation purchased the historic building from the city of Rockdale in November 2020, with plans to restore and create a new purpose for the building. Honoring its historic significance, the building has been dubbed The 1895.
