Making way for Gold Star Chili!

Crews from Holman Excavating were busy last Friday tearing down this old house in Versailles. The historic home was built around 1860, and was one of the oldest houses in the town of Versailles, according to current owners of the property, Scott and Cindy Neal. The house was razed to make way for a three-unit strip mall, which will contain Gold Star Chili. The house was referred to as the Benham House and sat behind the Shell Station just off US 50. Construction of the strip mall will begin soon, according to Neal.
