The old No. 7 schoolhouse at Tylersville and Cox roads in West Chester Township was razed early Friday morning, clearing the way for more expansion of the Cox-Tylersville intersection.

The 115-year-old building was at the center of a tussle between West Chester and Butler County officials over whether to save and move it, or simply tear it down. Cost and logistical issues involved with moving it to the nearby Voice of America Park ultimately forced abandonment of the idea.

County Commissioner Mike Fox, who had championed the idea of saving the building, said there was "no point spending time, money and energy on something few people seem to care about."
