ST. JOHNSBURY — A building that for decades served as the area’s destination for social functions, from wedding receptions to Citizen of the Year celebrations to weekly service club meetings to much more was leveled Tuesday.

As the Lincoln Inn for a majority of its life-span and for several years after as the Black Bear Tavern & Grille, the business across the street from the Gold Crown Lanes bowling alley on Hastings Hill was the place to gather in large groups year-round. Most recently unused by owner St. Johnsbury Academy and facing substantial investment to maintain, renovate and mitigate mold issues, the decision was made to demolish the place.
