YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A Youngstown landmark will soon be just a memory.
Demolition work began Monday at Krakusy Hall, located on South Avenue near Interstate 680.
The city paid $38,000 to demolish the structure in an effort to remove blight in the area.
Back in its heyday, Krakusy Hall was the hub of Polish life in Youngstown. Hundreds of weddings, graduation parties and First Communions were held there. It was also the home of the Southside Boxing Club.
The hall was built in 1939. A time capsule buried at the site will be removed Tuesday.
