A retirement home housed in a historic downtown Beaumont building is closing.
Mike Clark, with Hotel Beaumont's property management company says that the retirement home will close due to economic reasons.
Clark tells 12 News HD that this has been in the works for a few months and efforts are being made to help the retirement home's remaining residents find new accommodations. Clark says approximately 50 people are living in Hotel Beaumont.
12 News HD will have much more tonight at 5, 6 and 6:30.
