Oil City neighbours stood and watched as crews from Henderson builders tore down the former Oil City United Church Saturday. It was built in 1881 . The building, which had been used as a community hall for several years, was the last original building in the Enniskillen Township community. Township Clerk Duncan McTavish says over the last year, use has dropped and the cost to bring the building to provincial accessibility standards would never be recouped in rental fees. Neighbours watched the demolition and one, Tom Sinclair, was gifted with the sign which graced the community centre – one of the few mementos saved in the demolition.
