Historic St. George’s Church and Hall, facing likely demolition, will be put up for sale in a last-ditch effort to save it.
But officials at the Anglican Church’s Diocese of Huron ”” which owns the Walkerville property, with an asking price of $250,000 ”” aren’t holding their breath.
“We’re going to proceed with demolition but because the city really would like to see if we can sell it first, we’re going to test it on the market for a couple of months,” Paul Rathbone, secretary-treasurer for the Diocese of Huron, said Wednesday. “But we’re not going to hold it on the market long at all.
“I think the city will see there’s no demand for these buildings. One is condemned by an engineer.”
