A feature of the Northern Michigan University campus for more than 60 years is now on its way down.
Carey Hall served as a dormitory from 1948 to 1982.
It’s been completely vacant for nearly a decade.
And it would have cost too much to renovate, so it’s being demolished.
A chain–link fence went up around the building this morning.
Carey Hall should be totally demolished by August 3rd.
The work will take place only on weekdays between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. because of Marquette’s City noise ordinance.
The Marquette Fire Department got permission from NMU to use Carey Hall as a live burn training site.
Fire crews conducted that training earlier this month.
