Demolition Began at the Pump Handle Inn

By  | 

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- An old hotel that's been sitting vacant in south west Rockford for the nearly 5 years, is now gone.

Demolition on the Pump Handle Inn got underway yesterday. Last December, the city of Rockford gave Strenstrom and Clark developers the green light to flatten what's left of the vacant hotel to make way for future development. Right now, the city of Rockford says they aren't aware of any plans for the site.
