Tearing It Down
From our story by John Styf: "On Wednesday, the nearly 100-year-old former Bishop's House on Catholic Diocese of Green Bay property at 1910 S. Webster Ave. was torn down. And it was done without public warning, with the for sale sign still posted in the front yard...Some [onlookers] pointed out where they used to work. Some took photos. Others cried or shook their heads."
The Chancery was built in 1911.
A crowd of people gathered to watch crews begin razing the old Chancery building on the campus of the Catholic Diocese of Green Bay in Allouez, Wis., Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2010.
Red bricks tumble as a crew began razing the old Chancery building.
Diocesan workers Gladys Powell, left, and Karen Bass, right, react to a large section of the top floor of the old Chancery building falling onto a pile of rubble. The two, and some others watching the demolition, said they once had offices in the building.
