Historic Whitefish Frank Lloyd Wright building meets wrecking ball

Posted: Updated:

WHITEFISH - Crews are tearing down the first viable Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building to be demolished in more than 40 years.

The demolition began on Wednesday night after a failed negotiation to buy the property. The plans to demolish the Whitefish building first surfaced in November 2016.

Organizations including the Montana Preservation Alliance and the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy have been working to put a deal in place. A full $1.7 million offer was submitted to the building owner earlier this week by 341 Central LLC out of Chicago.

But, disagreements over the security deposit amount, as well as concerns over the building's current condition led the deal to fall through before Wednesday's deadline set by the seller.

The building was on the National Register of Historic Places. There is no timetable to when the demolition with be completed.
