Despite surviving the floodwaters of 2008, the Ira Sturdevant House in Waverly might be demolished through a FEMA buyout. A sheriff’s sale also threatens the house.

Although the Sturdevants live in Colorado, they are working with local and state preservationists to find a way to save the house from demolition.
