A piece of Webster history was demolished last week when the old Catholic school building was razed. The building, which was part of Christ the King Catholic Church’s property, was taken down June 14 because of its age and that it was no longer of use to the parish, according to Father Doug Binsfeld. The area where the building sat on Main Street has been leveled for maintenance ease and will be used as additional parking and a green space, Binsfeld said. One passerby who stopped to watch part of the demolition, Mike Gaikowski, 60, said he went through second grade at the school before attending public school. “Yes,” he remarked with a laugh, “them nuns did have thick rulers and they weren’t afraid to use them.” According to another former student, Mike Grosek, the structure taken down last week was the newest and only remaining part of what was once a multiple-section complex. He said the school closed in 1969 and his eighth grade class was the last to attend there.
