Fancy fiddles fixing to be featured at former fort

MCCLELLAN, Ala. (AP) — A 1936 brick building in McClellan's warehouse district will soon house Howard Core Company, one of the world's largest violin makers and wholesalers.

The company, which already has a space at a former parochial school in
downtown Anniston, purchased the building from McClellan's Joint Powers Authority for $200,000. The manufacturer will renovate the warehouse into a showcase for the violins.
