MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - One of Mitchell’s historic buildings will be coming down.

The Daily Republic reports ( ) that the City Council has approved the demolition of the former Holy Family Catholic Church rectory.

The building was constructed in the 1920s and served as the home of the parish’s priests until recent years, when the church bought a new building.

The church sought a demolition permit for the old rectory, which is on the South Dakota State Register of Historic Places and also the National Register of Historic Places. Church officials said the building has water leaks, mold, bad windows and is uninhabitable.

The space where the building sits likely will be converted to green space or a meditation area.
