Southern Indiana school district to raze historic home

GEORGETOWN, Ind. (AP) — A southern Indiana school district is moving ahead to demolish a century-old home in the path of a road-improvement project after a plan to move the structure failed to come together.

Members of Georgetown Main Street and Indiana Landmarks had asked the New Albany-Floyd County school board this spring to delay bulldozing the vacant house in hopes that they could arrange for it to be moved. But the preservation advocates were unable to devise a moving plan.

District deputy superintendent Brad Snyder tells The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Kentucky, (http://cjky.it/1hQzLm9 ) the house will be razed Monday to improve access and safety on a short roadway between Georgetown Elementary School and Indiana 64.

Volunteers planned to hold a salvage sale at the house as a fundraiser for Georgetown Main Street.
