Murray Main Street hosts a fundraiser trivia night at the Murray Banquet Center on Friday, February 20th at 6 p.m. One day after last year's trivia event was the night of the first downtown building collapse. On Sounds Good, Murray Main Street Manager Deana Wright says this underscores the importance of the event and in helping to support the cause for historic preservation in Murray.

Murray leaders and residents are forming a vision for downtown after a series of disasters destroyed several buildings this year.

Work is moving forward to clean up the building that collapsed in downtown Murray last weekend.

By this weekend, a contractor will shore up the north and remaining west walls and remove the building’s roof. Then, a structural engineer will assess the building’s condition and provide additional direction to the demolition contractor.

Murray Main Street officials want the public to know downtown is open and most businesses are unaffected following this weekend’s partial building collapse just off the court square.
