Over the winter, we noticed that the old Our Lady of Aglona Mission church at the corner of Rockwell and Wabansia was listed for sale. The 5,100-square-foot brick church hit the market in September for $499,000, and although it clearly needed a ton of work, the potential was there for an interesting conversion. Listing photos showed tall arched windows (sans stained glass), soaring ceilings and large open spaces. In the spring, the asking price was lowered to $469,000, and the church finally sold this week for $410,000.
