Historic Gilruth building comes crashing down
By JASON PATTERSON
It survived the terrible fire of 1904 and the Great Flood of 1927, but time finally caught up with the Gilruth building.
The historic downtown building collapsed Monday night, bringing down a wall of the J.F. Oakes building next door with it.
Fire Marshal Kenny Lewis said a police officer came upon the collapsed building at around 10:30 p.m. No one was injured.
