WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Demolition has begun on the historic Merou Grotto Tuesday. The building was a landmark in West Lafayette since the early 1900's.
According to Tippecanoe County Area Plan Commissioner Don Plumb the land will be redeveloped into two single-family housing plots.
The Grotto served as a former wedding and events venue. It was home to one of the largest wooden dance floors in the county.
It was an extension of the Grottoes of North America.
Lamb says the property is scheduled to be cleared by the time road construction is completed along River Road.
