This portion of the sprawling Tiger Marine building will be demolished with the rest of the building to create a new home for The Happy Sol, a popular clothing boutique in New London. Built about a century ago, the building was used to sell and service Model T and Model A automobiles. It has also played home to a pool hall and a boat retail and service business.

A piece of New London, Minn., commercial history comes to an end


NEW LONDON - A New London Main Street building with a century-long history that started with selling and servicing Model T cars and ended with selling and servicing boats - with a long stint as a pool hall in the middle - will be demolished this week.

Demolition of the former Tiger Marine building is expected to begin today.

The process to tear down and haul away the building, which is sprawled across three large lots, will take two to three days.
