Definition of demolition:
But churches pass like other things, and near the century- end came the decision by landowners and lease interpreters that this graceful length of brownstone and the pile beneath it must move off the premises, which meant, of course, that the steeple must come down, the time appointed for this demolition being August, 1899. Now, the taking down of a steeple two hundred and thirty- eight feet high, that rises on a closely built city street, is not so simple a proceeding as might at first appear.- "Careers of Danger and Daring", Cleveland Moffett.
