The city of Oxford is demolishing several unsafe buildings in its historic downtown, a bittersweet decision as officials press forward to revitalize the district.

Historic Main Street Oxford (HMSO) and the city announced the demolition of structures at nine properties on East Choccolocco Street and Spring Street. The demolitions are expected to be completed by June 1, according to a news release.

Officials said they ultimately determined the demolition was necessary for the city to move forward on planned district enhancements, including construction of a proposed Alabama Children’s Museum, that the city hopes will attract “mixed-use commercial development to the area,” the news release said.
