This could be an amazing project for someone creative! This is a big church! St. Patrick’s Irish Catholic Church was built in 1899. It is located on .31 acres in Escanaba, Michigan. Love all of the old pictures they included with the listing. There is also a vintage ladder firetruck that can be purchased for $17,500. This church is a big one at 15,400 square feet. $125,000

From the Zillow listing:


Just waiting for someone to restore this gem! Former church includes 2 parking lots. LARGE kitchen, 2 bathrooms and PLENTY of space. Being sold as is. PLENTY of repairs needed, but overall structurally solid. Currently zoned residential-many commercial uses allowed, and any can be applied for via variance. The possibilities for this property are endless. Also for sale, but not included, 150′ x 100′ original parking lot parcel, as well as Vintage 106′ ladder truck Fire truck to assist with repairs (and publicity, if wanted!). Package deal for entire lot of goods! Needs some repairs, but a solid base for reno. Brewpub? B and B? Restaurant? Event Center? Apartments? Inn? Even a Church, maybe! Feel free to contact with questions if truly interested. Thanks for looking.
