A CLAW-EQUIPPED EXCAVATOR demolishes the former rectory and convent building beside the St. John the Baptist Church on Pleasant Street on Tuesday. Built more than 100 years ago and designed by Brunswick’s own legendary architect, Samuel B. Dunning, the building had fallen into moderate disrepair. The parish has been unable to find either a buyer or someone willing to take the building for free and relocate it. In its place is planned a parking lot with closer access for disabled parishioners to the building’s only handicapped accessible entrance.
