SENECA FALLS — Demolition of former Seneca Knitting Mill structures on both sides of the limestone building that will be the new home of the National Women’s Hall of Fame is scheduled for 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Crews from Sessler Wrecking and Excavating in Waterloo will be at the scene to demolish remaining brick walls on the west side of the limestone building, with a goal of keeping the smokestack intact to incorporate it into the new Hall of Fame design.
