West Clermont begins demolition as new buildings near completion

Two of the oldest school buildings still in use in Clermont County will come down this summer.

The West Clermont School District is nearing completion on two new elementary schools that were paid for through a bond issue passed in 2007 and as a result of the new construction the former Withamsville Tobasco Elementary School and the former Amelia High School will be torn down this summer.

Demolition of the 1965 addition to the Withamsville building began Wednesday, June 16.
