LENNON, Mich. - A long-standing eyesore was demolished in the village of Lennon Monday.

The building sat at the corner of East Lennon Road and Oak Street and was once home to a window factory but has since sat vacant for years.

The Michigan Land Bank Fast Track Authority worked with the volunteers of the village of Lennon to acquire the building for demolition.


"We've had our eye on this property for over ten years since 2004 we acquired our first parcel of this property and since then we've been working to clean this property up. The volunteers of the village of Lennon did a great job of acquiring the last piece of property for us and finally we can remove a blighted structure from the village of Lennon," said Josh Burgett of the Land Bank.

The village of Lennon volunteers raised over $15,000 for this project.

The goal is to now convert the space into residential property.
