One of the most his­toric land­marks in Adams Town­ship in Defi­ance County will soon be noth­ing more than a mem­ory. Repair and main­te­nance just got to be too much for St. Michael’s Catholic School, which first opened back in 1921.

The build­ing closed as a Catholic school in 1978 but has been used for other pur­poses since then.

Main­tain­ing the build­ing has cost $14,000-$17,000 annu­ally. Now, the boiler needs parts that are dif­fi­cult to obtain. Bishop Leonard Blair of the Dio­cese of Toledo approved the demo­li­tion request last fall.
