VENICE, FL - The one time winter home of Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus is undergoing a surgical demolition.

Crews began preparing the site along U.S. 41 last week, and have now started a careful deconstruction of the iconic circus arena.

The building has fallen into disrepair over the years, but amid local efforts to save it, crews are saving parts of the structure in hopes it will one day be rebuilt.
