Demolition Begins at Sewickley Country Inn

Workers began prepping for demolition this week at the former motel and banquet center.

Ryan Dzadony lives directly across the boulevard from the old Sewickley Country Inn and won’t mind seeing the place torn down.  

“It’ll be nice to see something nice there,” Dzadony said.

Utility workers and crews were at the site on Tuesday prepping for the demolition of the old inn. MCM Ventures, the private developer, is overseeing the process.

Borough officials have said it all boils down to safety.  

“Our police are there all the time. It’s an eyesore and it’s a safety hazard, and our residents deserve better,” Mayor Brian Jeffe said. 

As one final hoorah, the Country Inn was used during filming of the Jack Reacher movie starring Tom Cruise. From old jobs to wedding receptions, Patch readers are also sharing memories of the inn.
