COLUMBIA CITY — After months of being in limbo, Testworth Laboratories is expected to finally come down this month.

According to Whitley County Chief Building Inspector Craig Wagner, the owner of the building has scheduled demolition to restart in the next week.

Demolition on the building began last fall, and was stopped for undisclosed reasons. After a long winter, the building remains half-demolished, and what many city officials have deemed as an “eyesore” in recent City Council meetings.

According to Wagner, the owner, Stephan Wells, said the building will be demolished by the end of the month.
