BRATTLEBORO, Vermont — The newly renovated Brooks House is open to the public.
A fire gutted the historic Brattleboro, Vermont, building in April 2011 and a few months later, the streets were flooded due to Tropical Storm Irene.
Since then, a group of local businessmen and developer formed to purchase and renovate it.
The Brattleboro Reformer reports (http://bit.ly/1bI41RH) the public was invited to the building on Saturday, checking out a new frozen yogurt shop. A jewelry shop and a restaurant were preparing to open soon.
Classes started last month at the building for Community College of Vermont and Vermont Technical College students.
A grand opening is planned for Oct. 3.
