WAYNESBORO, Va. (AP) - A Waynesboro official is recommending that a historic city-owned building be demolished or put up for sale.
Media outlets report that City Council is scheduled to consider City Manager Michael Hamp's recommendation at its meeting Monday night.
The council declared the Arnold House surplus property in March.
Built in the 1820s, the building served as the city's first schoolhouse and was the first Masonic Lodge in the area. The city took ownership in 1955. Since then, the building has fallen into disrepair and needs more than $30,000 in renovations.
