A loud implosion could be heard in northern Colorado.

An iconic but abandoned sugar factory building was demolished Sunday and hundreds of residents came out to witness it.

The building dates back to 1902 and employed a number of people in the town before it was eventually shut down.

And, as the crowd gathered they watched part of their town's history came down including the nearby water and smoke towers.

The entire building was supposed to come down but now parts of it are left standing with the water tower now on top of it.

Once the demolition is officially complete the plan is to turn this area into a railway trans-load facility.

It's not clear what the town will do to finish the demolition of the building.
