PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - Drivers on Grand Central Avenue may have already noticed some changes around the Masonic Home in Parkersburg.

West Virginia Freemason officials confirmed Wednesday they are demolishing the century-old Masonic Home located in Parkersburg.

They would not speak on why the structure is being torn down.

It was closed in mid-2016. By early 2017, county officials knew of rumors about major developers being interested in the property, though Freemason officials would not speak on anything but the demolition.
