White Castle Demolished

Meridian, Miss. A historic Meridian building was torn to the ground Tuesday.

A crew began demolition on the White Castle Lounge, located on Highway 145 near the city limits in Meridian.

The lounge was open from the 1950s until just a few years ago. It closed in 2006.

The building has been a well-known landmark in the city for many years. Crews will finish tearing it down Wednesday. No word on what plans are for the property now.
