The dismantling of the Wurlitzer building in the Corinth industrial park on Fulton Drive began earlier this week.

The crew from Century Construction of Tupelo got to work Thursday morning knocking down brick walls around the 100,000-square-foot industrial building. On Friday, they removed the old water tower from the skyline behind the building.

The deconstruction of the roof and frame of the structure is set to begin today. Crews said the entire building should be down by early next week when ground clean-up work will begin.

City officials hope the removal of the industrial building will improve the marketability of the site.

Known for organs, electronic pianos and jukeboxes, the Rudolph Wurlitzer Company entered into an agreement with Corinth in 1955 to come to the city. The agreement included a bond issue and the city improving the land and constructing a factory.

The property has been an industrial site since 1950.

Most recently, the building was occupied by FCA.
