WAYNESBORO, Va. (AP) -- The Waynesboro Historical Commission hopes to find a way to save a historic city-owned building that's fallen into disrepair.

Media outlets report that the City Council declared the building surplus property this week. The move gives City Manager Mike Hamp or Mayor Bruce Allen the authority to sell the property or to dispose of it.

Historical commission chairman David Geiger says the two-story building dates to the 1820s. It's believed to be Waynesboro's oldest schoolhouse.

The building needs more than $30,000 in renovations.

Geiger says the council offered to give the commission three months to develop a preservation plan.
