Auction set for historic Port Huron rectory items

(PORT HURON) -- Items from the historic St. Joseph's rectory in Port Huron will soon be sold off before the building is torn down in June. The rectory was donated to Blue Water Habitat for Humanity, which will auction items at the property on April 30. Among items to be sold are five marble fireplace mantles and a winding staircase. David Miles is facilities and building supervisor for Holy Trinity Parish, which includes St. Joseph's, and vice president of Blue Water Habitat. He says items that don't sell will be salvaged by Habitat for sale at its ReStore. The 7,000-square-foot Second Empire-style house was built in the late 1800's. The church decided to demolish the house after unsuccessfully trying to sell it.
