The historic St. Peter’s Church in Duluth is up for sale with a $150,000 price tag but that’s just for the surrounding land.

Although the interior is severely damaged, real estate agents say the value of the property has the potential for a sale. 

The real value of the property is in the location and view of Lake Superior. 

But, within the last two weeks, Frank Messina of Real Living Messina & Associates has only had one call.

Messina says the repairs cost much more than the current asking price. 

“Not too many people have that deep of pocket to go in there and spend a couple of million to bring it back to it’s days of grander,” he expressed. 

But, he is hopeful someone will want the building or land.

Messina says he will lower the price within the next couple of weeks if it doesn’t sell.

“Maybe a developer coming in wants to put in some apartments or condos.  It would be perfect.  The setting and views would be pristine,” Messina said.

The church closed in 2010 after failing to keep up with maintenance costs.
