One of the oldest buildings in South Walton shut its doors for the last time on Thursday.
Seagrove Village Market Cafe, which opened 66 years ago when the area was mostly dirt roads and only a few families called it home, is moving down the street to a newer building. They will reopen in about six months.
It was a bittersweet moment for George and Ann Hartley, who have owned the restaurant since 1999.
About 100 longtime customers — and some of the first residents to establish the area in the mid-60s — arrived to show their support and say good-bye to the old building Thursday morning. Throughout the day, loyal locals and visitors stopped in for a last look at the place and to grab a bite to eat to hold them over until the new location opens.
