Former Longhorn Bar Building Coming Down
Former Longhorn Bar Building Coming Down

Mitchell’s oldest building is about to be no more.  The building on Main Street which formerly housed the Longhorn Bar was built in 1879.  An interior wall collapsed, forcing the Longhorn Bar to move across the street.  The city bought the building and hired Ironman Construction of Tyndall to tear it down.  The contractual deadline for the demolition is May 15.  It is hoped that streets will re-open in the area of 1st and Main by Thursday.
