Video: Demolition of Robin Hood Inn Changes Kent's Landscape Forever

It's unclear what will happen to the property now that the landmark building no longer stands

It took just a few hours to erase almost a century of memories this morning when crews demolished the at the corner of East Main and North Lincoln streets this morning.

When , some members of the community tried to rally and persuade the owner, Christine Coven, to save the building from the proverbial wrecking ball.

In the end, no one could save the iconic brick structure from tumbling into oblivion.

Great job of capturing this Matt! Makes me so sad thinking about all of the great times I've had there. (Love the attire lol)

It was going to cost the landowner $500,000 to fix the buildings structure problems. I hope this answers your question on why the building was demolished. http://www.recordpub.com/news/article/5025823

Many a night spent in the old Robin Hood, playing music in there, listening to music,fun times but also a very sad time- the night John Lennon was murdered I was there with friends .I hope a new landmark capable of creating a lot of great new memories for people rises from the rubble. Kent was and is a great town, I miss it but visit whenever I return 'home", but I'll miss that sign as I drive down Main Street.

Very sad. They probably could have auctioned off the sign for charity, too. Shame.
