Endangered: 202 Beaver St. in Sewickley

An 1850s mansion in Sewickley, at 202 Beaver Street, is endangered.  A church has purchased the property and intends to demolish it for a parking lot or youth center.  Asbestos abatement costs have been cited as the reason the historic building can not be repurposed as a youth center.  However, demolition also requires the cost of asbestos removal, so what gives?
