Starting Tuesday, the old brick Providence Academy smokestack, a landmark of Vancouver that greets Interstate 5 passersby, will begin to be taken apart.

Historical groups and philanthropists have tried to save it, but the landowner, The Historic Trust, says it’s too expensive to restore. Instead, it’s focusing efforts and money on preserving and restoring the Providence Academy next door.
