Owners say work could begin to soon remove the remnants of a 200-plus-year-old in in Western Massachusetts that was destroyed by fire in 2009. The Egremont Board of Health recently issued an enforcement order against the property owners of what had been the Egremont Inn. The Berkshire Eagle reported that Robert and Marie Johnson were ordered to remove the standing buildings, fill the basement, and clear the property of debris and a fence by the end of May. A representative of the Johnsons made a verbal commitment to go ahead with a demolition. The site’s property manager said he is working with state environmental officials for a demolition permit and clearing the site will take three or four days.
