120-year-old home to be torn down

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- A building that's stood in Madison for nearly 120 years will soon be torn down.

Volunteers with Habitat for Humanity spent Monday removing wood flooring, kitchen cabinets and more from the Victorian style home at 1022 Mound Street.

Those materials will then be sold at the two Habitat Restore locations in Madison.

Frank Byrne is the Deconstruction Manager with Habitat Restores and says, "This is totally with a volunteer crew, but it's a great way to save materials from the landfill and also help habitat build homes with the proceeds that are generated."

The developer of an apartment building was trying to give away the house for free, but the new owner would have had to pay $40,000 to move it, and no one stepped forward.
