Weidmann's Changes Hands

By  | 

Fred and Sissy Wyle have assumed operating ownership of the famed downtown Meridian restaurant, Weidmann's.

Nick Apostle of Jackson, who leased it when it was remodeled, is out.

"When we learned it was closed, it was devastating. Weidmann's has been a significant part of the fabric of downtown Meridian for 130 years," said Fred Wile. "And more importantly, I think the rebirth of Weidmann's has been a very visible sign of the rebirth of downtown Meridian."

Willie McGehee will stay on as general manager.
