Local resident Ken Cunningham said the store burned down about 25 years ago but prior to that had been there as long as he’s been Trigg County. Now all that’s there is a partially filled hole, dirt, Johnson grass and some tiling.
“It took us three days to clean it up,” said Ramona Hamilton of the Humane Society. “All of this was a big hole in the ground. The state brought dirt to fill it up. They’re trying to help us get it filled in.”
Hamilton said that it will be the Humane Society Board will ultimately decide what to do with the lot. But while the non-profit organization doesn’t have any immediate plans for it, she says she might like to see it become a park or a playground someday. However, they’d primarily like for it to look nice.
Hamilton says they’re looking for volunteers, possibly from the Wallonia area, to help the Humane Society fill in the lot and clean it up.
