WOONSOCKET â€” At the old Vermette's restaurant, a landmark banquet hall that served as a backdrop for countless rites of passage in northern Rhode Island, a wrecking crew will finish the job that Mother Nature began two weeks ago.
After rain-laden snow caused part of the roof to cave in, the city yesterday ordered the emergency demolition of the building, saying it has concluded that what remains of the structure is unsafe and cannot be saved.
