The historic mansion on Cove Road is being prepped for demolition. The columns are some of the last parts to be salvaged before the house is torn down. Guildhall, also known as the Moomaw House, was built in 1882 by Reverend D-C Moomaw. The Pastor of the Garden of Prayer church which owns Guildhall, says as much as he would love to renovate the building, doing so is unrealistic. The church will build a sanctuary and gymnasium in its place.
