Spruce Pine Buys Building
The former PNC Bank building in Spruce Pine will be renovated and turned into Town Hall, according to Town Manager Richard Canipe. The Town of Spruce Pine has approved purchase of a new property to serve as the town hall and police station.
The Town Board held an emergency meeting on August 21 to determine what price they would offer for the property and PNC accepted the Town’s counter offer of $325,000.
The building, located on Hwy 226 on top of Burleson Hill across from the Spruce Pine Cemetery, will serve as a new town hall and the town plans on later incorporating a police station into the property as well.
