Heavy machinery knocks down a building that last served as barbershop and residence in Springfield. - photo by Photo by Sandi Van Orden
A building that has been on Laurel Street in Springfield since 1873 was torn down on Monday. Bill Millsap bought the building 1963. He ran a barbershop in the building from 1963-2005 and lived in the upper floor of the structure with his family prior to moving to his current residence. He said he was having the building torn down because it was too costly to bring it up to code.
