The yellow-brick building at the Verso paper plant suddenly became visible again after years of being hidden behind the more modern additions at the mill. The brick structure was built between 1905-1906, virtually as old as the City of Sartell. This is a scene looking east from across the river near the DeZurik plant. City officials have already decided the building cannot be saved as a landmark as the cost would be prohibitive. It will have to come tumbling down.
