Bonanzaville has decided to demolish the centerpiece of it's site...
The Cass County Historical Society made the decision after weighing cost estimates.
Repairing the church would cost between 500-thousand and over 1-million dollars.
Demolishing it will cost 30-thousand dollars.
The board also approved a motion to talk with the owners of another 100 year old church, South Pleasant Lutheran in Christine, North Dakota.
They've offered to give the church to Bonanzaville.
"Very tough decision, I mean you're looking at a 100 plus year old facility and a lot of emotions," says Cass County Historical Society President John Monilaws.
Bonanzaville's insurance company valued the church at just over 27-thousand dollars.
