Abandoned 20 Years Ago, Former King Center Located on Crocker To Be Demolished Thursday

Freeport, Illinois — The city of Freeport has just released the date the demolition of the former Boys & Girls Club (King Center) located on Crocker street in Freeport, Illinois will take place.

The former King Community Center is set to be demolished Thursday, March 30, 2017. Tomorrow’s demolition will make the 100th since 2013.

Mayor Jim Gitz and Third Ward Alderman Art Ross will commemorate the demolition of the former King Community Center, which has been vacant and abandoned for close to 20 years. The decrepit building is located on Freeport’s east side and is a symbol of neglect. This demolition marks the 100th demolition in the City of Freeport since September 2013. Special focus will be the City’s continuing efforts to combat neighborhood blight.

The address of the former King Center is 633 East Crocker Street in Freeport (corner of East Crocker Street and North Adelbert Street).

The building is being demolished under a court order due to its deteriorated condition and its contribution to neighborhood blight.

The City of Freeport has contracted with Fischer Excavating, Inc. to demolish the building and clear the site.  Fischer will commence demolition shortly after 8:00 a.m.

Thursday, March 30, 2017 at 8:00 A.M.
