SUN PRAIRIE (WKOW) -- The original Sun Prairie City Hall damaged in an explosion in 2018 is set to be renovated this summer.

Construction on the Old City Hall on East Main Street will begin Monday, Aug. 3, and should be completed in the fall.

“We are excited to finally begin this renovation project and to bring some new businesses to the area,” said David Wilder, owner of BD One, LLC. “We are grateful for the patience and support from the Sun Prairie community and we are hopeful that this project can be a catalyst for the redevelopment of this corner of Sun Prairie’s historic downtown.”

City leaders say the building went up at 100 East Main Street in 1895 and is considered to be one of the most prominent and distinctive buildings in downtown Sun Prairie.

Since the explosion on July 10, 2018 the building has been sitting vacant.

Renovations are expected to be complete by the end of October.
