City Set to Demolish Former Convent of the Holy Nativity

The City of Fond du Lac is set to tear down the former Convent of the Holy Nativity building. City officials issued a raze or repair order after the building saw heavy damage in a June 2015 fire, and they say the owner has not complied with the order. The city asked for permission from the Historic Preservation Commission last year – to tear down the building along East Division Street. A hired contractor has until the end of the year to complete demolition of the convent.
