Several abandoned properties have come down over the past couple weeks, a site that we all have been hoping to see for several years. The cleanup is part of an initiative driven by Southern Bancorp to beautify the community. Seen in the photo is what remains of a duplex across the street from Fort Curtis. Other properties taken down include a structure on Missouri Street and on Biscoe, including the old Jack's Communication building.
