ARCHER HALL DEMOLISHED

Tuesday, two excavating machines demolished Archer Hall on the Greenville College campus. Archer Hall was more than 100 years old and was torn down about two weeks after the Bass-Mollett house. Greenville College, owner of both buildings, decided in December to raze the two structures.
