EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Crews are tearing down a building that's housed multiple restaurants during the past several decades.
On Monday, they could be seen dismantling the building at 805 S. Hastings Way in Eau Claire that was once Heckel's Family Restaurant. A manager at Heckel's in Lake Hallie tells WEAU 13 News that the Hastings Way location was the first Heckel's, and opened nearly 57 years ago. He says Heckel's continued ownership of the property when it was Blue Moon Restaurant, and had rented it to that restaurant's operator. Heckel's sold the restaurant last year. The manager did not know who bought the building then, or who owns it now.
There's no word on the future of the property. A message to the City of Eau Claire's Economic Development Administrator seeking comment was not immediately returned.
