Cooperstown Motel Demolition Begins

Demolition of the former Cooperstown Motel began on Monday.

The Chestnut Street hotel which was destroyed by fire last August will become the new location for CVS next spring.

According to a local TV station the demolition work was delayed because of environmental concerns including asbestos but now that those matters are resolved the razing should be completed this week.

Once CVS moves to Chestnut Street from its current Main Street location that property will be available for redevelopment.
