EUGENE, Ore. -- History is coming tumbling down as crews safely bring down the Agripac Cannery.
The building went up in 1928 and moved to EWEB's property in 2013.
The goal was to move it again to a new location on Franklin Boulevard. Cart de Frisco had plans to restore it for a restaurant venture but the building fell into disrepair.
Deconstruction of the cannery began last week and they said it is taking less time than they originally thought.
Even with the windows boarded, the building began to crumble. An engineering company deemed the building unsafe and the city opted to demolish it. Crews began a salvage operation last week, saving a big block of wood.
The Agripac building is mostly made of concrete blocks, weighing in at the 340,000 pounds.
