A building inspector recently declared four Nashwauk buildings uninhabitable.
One of those buildings, located at 212 and 214 Central Ave was formerly the town’s department store during the days of the mining boom.
The inspections completed June 10, 2015 left 3 structures in danger of being razed.
In addition to the former department store, single family homes at 212 Third Ave. and 401 Central Ave. were also condemned.
The owner of the former department store says he does not have the money to complete all the required repairs or to tear down the building.
The City of Nashwauk is currently trying to determine its next course of action with regard to the structure.
Nashwauk Mayor, Ben DeNucci said there’s currently no timetable for a final decision, but he does not think the city will purchase the building.
