Crews will soon demolish a Tulsa landmark.

The Blair Mansion was set to be demolished Saturday morning to make room for "a gathering place for Tulsa," a large park that will be built along Riverside Drive.

The original plan was to relocate the house, but according to a letter from Daniel Buford, the current resident of the mansion, "relocation is not feasible."

Buford also said he "explored every possibility" before deciding to take down the mansion.

Should have been preserved for the citizens to use. What a waste.
