Mill That Started Buffett's Empire Razed
The mill is being demolished despite efforts by Mayor Jon Mitchell to find a buyer and save what he considers a historically significant structure.
Buffett, apparently not sentimental, turned down an opportunity to repurchase the property.
Letendre emailed Buffett in October to tell him the building was available, but Buffett wasn't interested, according to story last month in The Wall Street Journal.
"I don't know what you'd do with that place," Buffett said.
Buffett did not immediately respond Tuesday to a message from The Associated Press about the mill's demolition.
