    MALVERN - In an effort to revitalize the business district in Malvern, the Malvern Area Betterment Association (MABA) has accepted ownership of two neglected buildings located at 401 and 403 Main Street.
    Both buildings have been vacant for many years and have fallen into disrepair. The previous owner of the buildings donated both structures, first erected in 1895 and 1910, to MABA earlier this spring. The 401 Main brick structure housed First National Bank in earlier years while the 403 Main building is commonly referred to as the “Wagon Wheel.”
