Berta's Place Coming Down in Martinsville

Martinsville, VA - A once popular Martinsville restaurant is being razed after falling into a state of disrepair.

Berta's Place on Broad Street is being demolished.
The building is believed to be at least 80 years old, and crews working on the demolition say they found bricks that dated back from 1908.
Martinsville Building official Ted Anderson had determined the building to be unsecured and beyond repair prior to the owner deciding to tear it down.
