(KSL News) A historic church in Provo has been demolished.

Historic Church in Provo is Demolished

It was one of two Spanish-style buildings in Utah County, but has been vacant since 2000.

Provo city leaders removed the building's landmark status in April to make way for demolition. The land the church sat on was sold to raise money for a new church.
