Old restroom razed

John Elliott


On Saturday, March 11, the dilapidated concrete-block structure on North Kaweah River Drive was torn down and removed. The building was formerly a restroom that was part of a county park in the 1950s and early ‘60s but in recent years was a target of graffiti and vandalism.
