A historic building in Snyder is set to be torn down.

The building known to Snyder locals as the Brownfield building was struck by lightning a year ago. 

Since then, pieces of it's dark brown and white brick and concrete have been falling nearly hitting pedestrians.

The building is owned by an out of town man that had the intentions of repairing the old building and bringing it up to code.

He was never able to do so, so five years ago it was put up for sale. 

City Manager of Snyder, Merle Taylor said the amount of work and money it would take to repair it has turned buyers away.

The owner has been notified that he was 30 days to bring it up to code before the city is forced to tear it down.

There has not been a date set of when the building will be demolished or what the city plans to put in the locations.

Snyder locals are sad to see the building go, but they know it is hazardous for the community.
