PHOTOS: A bomb exploded on Nashville's historic Second Avenue in the early morning of Dec. 25, 2020.
The blast damaged 65 buildings and displaced dozens of businesses and residents in a city already weary from a year marred by the COVID-19 pandemic and deadly tornadoes.
After a year of investigation, painstaking demolition and community collaboration, the shells of the most-damaged buildings stand largely cleared of debris and ready for the 200-year-old street's next evolution. Multiple local, state and federal agencies investigated the explosion, ultimately identifying 63-year-old Anthony Quinn Warner as the bomber.
Warner packed his RV with explosives and at 1:22 a.m. parked the vehicle in front of an AT&T switch facility, according to investigators.
