The historic Lone Star Saloon in Richmond is about to be demolished.
Heavily damaged by a fire in November, the remains of the 120-year-old building will be taken down by the end of the month, owner Bill Lundquist tells Fort Bend Now.
The good news: He's planning to build a replacement. That's not really "good news," for lovers of historic building, but it's better than nothing, we guess.
The new saloon will be a large one-room nightclub with a bar and dancing floor (No need to reinvent the wheel in Richmond), and should be 4,000 square feet.
