Sixpenny Inn Coming Down

ROCKFORD (WIFR) – In with the new, and out with the old. A Stateline motel that’s been vacant for more than a decade is finally coming down.

Crews started demolishing the old Sixpenny Inn this morning. Winnebago County bought the dilapidated building earlier this year for about $400,000.

It’s all part of a larger project to beautify and expand Airport Road. The main entrance to RFD construction on the actual road should begin later this summer.
