COLLIERVILLE, TN -

(WMC-TV) – The walls of the former Collierville Middle School are coming down.

Demolition began Friday on the building located near the intersection of Poplar and Walnut, as crews get ready to make room for the University of Memphis satellite campus.

Workers say it will take one and half to two weeks to tear everything down.

Two things will remain untouched on the campus: the gym and the historic Collierville High building.
