View of Fry Warehouse from the park

Fry Warehouse stands in ruins

The Fry Warehouse in Salem stood partially crumbled today after the first round of demolition on the building began last week.
The building is an odd sight from the streets surrounding it. It was built in the 1920's and was used to store hops, but it remained dormant for some time.
According to an article in the Statesman Journal, some believe the ground beneath the building might have once been an Indian burial site.

Uh, Oh.... Indian Burial Site. Uh, Oh.... You know what THAT means.... And, I don't blame our Native Americans for standing their ground in these matters. It's their heritage and their ancestry at stake.
