Saving old pump house


Efforts made to save pump house from demolition

DECATUR, Ill. (WCIA)– A century old landmark could soon be demolished, but one group is trying to save it. The Staley Pump House is owned by Tate and Lyle. The building has been sitting empty for decades.

Last week, a man made a presentation to city council. He’s asking for help to get the company to consider alternatives to demolition. He says the city is touring the building next week.
