On Christmas morning people in the Nashville area were rocked awake by an explosion on Second Avenue that destroyed several historic buildings. NASBA’s headquarters building is a little more than a block away from where the blast went off, but it appears no significant damage was sustained to the building or NASBA’s offices. Fortunately, no NASBA employees were hurt either. Getting in and out of the building was made difficult by police and press vehicles parked in the area, but with most of NASBA’s staff working remotely, that did not impact their work. Within a few days, it was determined that the explosion was caused by an individual suicide bomber who had been suffering from health issues.

The work to repair Nashville is underway (as these photos show) and NASBA – and Nashville – look forward to welcoming all back to meetings at 150 Fourth Ave North as soon as COVID restrictions permit.
