Not paying rent gets owner of Wrenn House restaurant evicted

SALISBURY — The owner of the Wrenn House restaurant was evicted last week for not paying rent, according to the landlord.
Last summer, Rowan County native Cassandra Bradley purchased the restaurant housed in the historic property at 115 S. Jackson St. and owned by the Maxwell Chambers Trust Fund of First Presbyterian Church Elders.
Dave Jordan, a trustee and treasurer for the trust, said the trust went through a legal process to have Bradley evicted. She left voluntarily after a judge signed the order, he said.
Jordan said he didn’t want to get into specifics about how much rent Bradley owed and other details of the eviction. He referred the Post to legal documents, which were not available Thursday night.
The trust has been working to clean up the building for about a week, he said.
“The first thing is to get it in good physical shape and get it cleaned up,” Jordan said. “Obviously, it needed work in the yard and inside.”
The restaurant did not keep the building in good repair, Jordan said, but the trust found no permanent damage. He estimated it will take about six weeks to clean, paint and repair the property and put it back on the market for rent.
Some people already have expressed interest in renting the property, “but we’ll have to wait and see whether anything materializes,” Jordan said.
The trust has hired Jesse Hammill to clean out the building, Jordan said. Hammill sold the Wrenn House business to Bradley. Bradley’s phone number is not listed.
