FLORA, Ind. (WLFI) - An old school building is set to be torn down once a Carroll County town owns it.
The Monroe Township School building in Flora, built in 1932, is in the process of being acquired by the town.
What used to hold all grade levels has since been replaced by Carroll High School in 1963 and Carroll Elementary in 1984.
It has sat empty since.
Town Clerk-Treasurer Joretta Tinsman says the previous owner wanted to turn it into condominiums.
"We wouldn't put a factory or something like that here," said Tinsman. "If it's housing or more condos or something like that, then we would consider that. But, it has to go with the neighborhood, whatever it's going to be."
The town should own the building by the end of the month and demolition could begin this summer.
