The windows and doors are boarded up.

Most of the things inside were auctioned off last fall.

Workers are trying to get the bell out of the steeple.

Demolition is expected to begin on Monday.

    In Charleston, S.C. they have a preservation society to preserve these historical structures and as a result thrive from it. In Pennsylvania they tear down yesteryear’s gems. So sad.
