Brainerd Building demolition begins today in Libertyville
Nov 17, 2014 9:27 AM - After 97 years, the end is near for Libertyville's Brainerd Building. The original home of the Libertyville High School Wildcats, the two-story facility on Route 176 at Brainerd Avenue is facing its final curtain and a date with a wrecking ball. "It's going to be a little different, to not have the Brainerd Building there," said Libertyville Mayor Terry Weppler, who grew up in town. "It think everybody's going to miss it."
