Chimney demolished at Glenville business to make way for solar field

The former Van Curler Greenhouse on Freemans Bridge Road began its transformation Wednesday, with the demolition of the chimney.

Property owners will be putting a solar field in the back and readying the property – where the greenhouses are located – for retail.

Glenville Town Supervisor Chris Koetzle tells NewsChannel 13 providing space for retail was part of the town’s agreement with the owners.
