The fight to save the 19th Century Club is coming to an end

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - One way or another, the fight to save a 106-year-old building will be over Friday.

Advocates for the survival of the 19th Century Club on Union Avenue have sued a corporation who purchased the building.

Plaintiffs in the case are claiming the sale was misrepresented and they were misled into thinking the vote was to list the property to sale. In actuality, it was a vote to sell the property to The Union Group.

The Union Group is planning to tear the building down.

Another complication to this lawsuit is the proceeds of the sale went to the Children's Museum of Memphis. The organization has already spent the money on new exhibits. The museum is now also being sued.

The judge is expected to announce a ruling on the case at 1 p.m.
