NELSONVILLE — A contract to demolish a house at 754 Chestnut St. in Nelsonville was approved Tuesday by the Athens County Commissioners to make way for a parking area for Nelsonville Senior Citizens.

The organization's clubhouse is adjacent to the property where the demolition will take place. Tony Skaggs of Logan was awarded the $16,840 contract.

The commissioners purchased the house last year for $35,000, according to staff members.

Money for the purchase and demolition is from the county's senior citizens levy.
