The Old Brown Box

I remember back to the days of the old Greenville Memorial Auditorium or as others would call it "The Old Brown Box" or "The House That Flair Built".  The place had many nicknames and many memories.  I remember the 1st event that I went to their was wrestling, shocker right, and I was 4 years old.  I even watched it on tv when it was torn down for the bilo center to be built but I still raise the question as many of you do as well, why was it torn down in the 1st place? I know that there were talks of turning it into a parking lot or garage for the bilo center, and the recent talks of turning it into another portion of the courthouse but heres a suggestion, why not rebuild it and keep it there for smaller events? It works well for charlotte, atlanta, and other cities why cant it work for greenville? There are events at the bilo center that cant sell it out but if the auditorium was still there it would pack it out.  Just something for the city of greenville to think about.
