Ed Henry purchases former newspaper building

Limestone Building Group to occupy space starting mid-September 

Local businessman and former state representative Ed Henry has purchased the building on Chestnut Street that formerly housed the Hartselle Enquirer – and, in mid-September, the building will be leased to the Limestone Building Group.  

Owners Kerrick Whisenant and Wyatt Montgomery will bring their general contractor business to Hartselle from Tanner, along with the company’s nine employees.  

Our first day in business there will be Sept. 14,” Whisenant said.  

The pair bought the business in June from previous owner Mitch Claborne and said they decided to relocate to Hartselle because of their previous ties to the area. Whisenant said they shopped around Morgan County before finding the building on Chestnut Street would fit their needs.  

Limestone Building Group has been in operation since 2007, previously a sister company to Cornerstone Detention Products and Claborne Manfacturing, which began in Hartselle as Slate Security Systems 

Limestone Building Group is a full-service general contractor that specializes in design builds, traditional bid builds, consulting services, development and commercial consultingWhisenant explained 

“We do basically anything that has to do with commercial construction,” he said. “We also have the ability to do residential construction. 

We’re excited about our new opportunity (in Hartselle),” he added. “We’re moving to an appropriatelysized space that is halfway between mine and Wyatt’s houses … and I started my career in Hartselle at Slate Security Systems.”  

Whisenant said he and Montgomery are both graduates of Auburn University, where they studied building sciences.  

“We have a five-year lease, and we see ourselves growing in that time,” he said. “We will see where life takes us after that.”
