The Hammers Construction crew began the demolition of the old Perham High School's east end and administration wing on Monday, Jan. 18. The structure was separated from the west wing the previous week. The remaining part of the building will be remodeled into the Hub after the demolition is completed.

The remodeled part of the Hub community center project will be completed by Tradesman Construction and has an estimated completion date of Sept. 3.

The city of Perham purchased the old high school from the Perham-Dent Public Schools with the intent of transforming it into the Hub. Once complete the Hub will serve as a new home for Perham's Boys and Girls Club and Empowering Kids.
