Future of historic Waterford building pending following collapse

WATERFORD, Pa. -- The historic Judson Building in downtown Waterford will most likely be torn down after a corner of the building collapsed Wednesday night.

Building inspectors were at Joe's Auto Parts at 102 High St. Thursday morning inspecting the damage after the corner of the building collapsed, exposing a large opening in the building.

Firefighters were initially called to the building around 9 p.m. Wednesday when the northwest corner of the building fell.

The decision to demolish the building now lies in the hands of the Waterford Borough. The building's owner, Benny Hunt, said he has wanted to renovate and restore the building but said it would cost $500,000. Money he says he and the borough don't have.

Adeline's Attic, next door to the building, had bricks fall through its roof and they are closed indefinitely until the damage is fixed.
