BECKLEY — A work crew begins the demolition of Beckley Feed and Hardware at the corner of Prince Street and Robert C. Byrd Drive in Beckley. The company started in 1926, then moved to its current location in 1935. It closed for good June 15. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2001. That designation, however, doesn’t require the building be protected or preserved. The property was reportedly sold to Paramount Development Corp., with a McDonald’s expected to be built on the site.
