Sawmill Demo Underway

Demolition of the former Sawmill Inn began in February. Hotel construction of a new Best Western is scheduled to begin last this summer. According to The Ranger, the information newsletter of the Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation, the 9 acre lot will be subdivided into six commercial parcels. The hotel will occupy one of the lots, with the others devoted to commercial development. The developer, Rebound Hospitality, also purchased an adjacent 15 acre property.
