Condemned Church to Be Torn Down By School

A church located at 132 S. Central Avenue in Burlington will soon be torn down.

The Whole Truth Gospel Church of Holiness was put up for bid on November 4th and the Burlington Community School District has approved to purchase it for $2,000. The church is located right next to the three empty lots they currently own.

Chris Stensland reported to the School Board tonight that the city requires the structure to be demolished within 90 days..

“If you’ve been by it today you will notice that the doors and windows are gone. The city allowed the preservation station to go in and take everything.”

The cost of demolition is between $15,000 and $20,000.
