LYNDEN, Wash. – A historic building on Front Street in Lynden is falling apart and may have to be torn down sooner than expected.

The Lynden Tribune reports that the city bought the Star Merchantile building in 2009 and planned to tear it down at some point.

That time may be now, after pieces of the building started falling off in late May.

The city condemned the building and a martial arts business had to move out.

They hope to figure out what to do with the building before the Raspberry Festival in mid-July.
