The appellees owned a plot 60 feet deep fronting 242 feet on the main highway near the center of the City of Olive Hill. On it were a 40-year-old hotel building, a modern bus depot, and a dilapidated brick building the ground floor of which had at one time been used for store purposes and the upper floor of which had been rented as an apartment. For the purpose of widening the highway the Commonwealth condemned a strip 25 feet deep along the entire frontage of the plot. This necessitated the demolition of all three buildings. The jury in circuit court awarded $75,000 damages and judgment was entered accordingly, from which the Commonwealth appeals.
