Smithfield gazebo stage demolition underway

Demolition of the Smithfield Times gazebo stage began Friday and continued Monday. Smithfield’s and Isle of Wight County’s shared tourism department plans to replace the 23-foot-wide stage with a 37-foot-wide version, which will include a wheelchair ramp and brick path connecting to Hayden’s Lane park. The project is being funded with a combination of Smithfield’s American Rescue Plan Act dollars and a $10,000 grant from the Virginia Tourism Corporation. As of last fall, the goal was to have the work complete by May when the town reprises its Arts Fest. (Stephen Faleski/The Smithfield Times)
