Courthouse Square, Vandalia

Downtown Vandalia has a nice cross section of architectural styles. I was impressed with the overall level of occupation of buildings. While some are abandoned, like the movie theater below, I still felt like there was life here.

Many cast iron storefronts are in excellent condition.

The residential neighborhood begins on the other side of the tracks.

Very little demolition as well, except of course this part on the south side of the square.

    The demolition you pointed out on the last two pictures were unfortunately due to structure fires.
