UPDATE: Historic home in Madison to be demolished

MADISON (WKOW) -- A historic home in Madison will be demolished.

The developer of an apartment building was trying to give away the house at 1022 Mound Street for free, but the new owner had to pay to move it.

No one bought the house and now it will be torn down.
 
Before that happens, a Habitat for Humanity team will salvage material from the home. Recycled contents will be available at Habitat ReStores in Madison.
 
The Victorian-style home was built in 1894.
