UPDATE: Action delayed on Spain House demolition request

By Emily Le Coz/NEMS Daily Journal

TUPELO – The Historic Preservation Commission today tabled a request by Calvary Baptist Church to demolish the Spain House.

Commission members cited a lack of information in the application for a demolition permit submitted by the church.

The church bought the century-old home in 2006 and wants to tear it down.

Church members expressed disappointment in the delay, but the commission expects to take the matter up again when it meets next month.
