Watch the demolition of the Wheaton Library (Video)

Hot off the presses - new video of the demolition of the venerable Wheaton Library. Two hours, thirty-nine minutes, and forty-seven seconds of destruction, for your viewing pleasure. Sad to see this one go, but the demolished Wheaton Youth Center next door was architecture and history truly worth saving. Led Zeppelin did play there!


  1. It was a good imitation of Newt Gingrich or Donald Trump when Nancy Navarro took to the pages of the Washington Post to characterize renovating and restoring the architecturally and historically important Wheaton Youth Center as an eyesore supported by elitist "historians."

  2. That renovation was ugly and cheap. The stairs and floor had the hollow, flimsy feel of a tract home from the 1970s.

  3. I agree...It was fine before renovation...Then ugly as hell
