Archbishop Prendergast High School pre-demolition sale begins Saturday: What you should know

DREXEL HILL, Pennsylvania (WPVI) — As of Saturday at 9 a.m., everything at Archbishop Prendergast High School is for sale, with a few exceptions.

Drexel Hill High School was left empty when the Archdiocese of Philadelphia consolidated the school with Monsignor Bonner High School.

The building was originally built as an orphanage in 1907 and sold to Delaware County Community College.

Kevin Tobin is the owner of Pre-Demolition Sales and was hired by the college to handle the sales.

“We just keep getting calls… We advertise in a couple of places. We got so many calls we just stopped advertising,” Tobin said.

Seats and equipment from the auditorium have to give way. Classroom items and even kitchen appliances like a pizza oven are also on the list.

The archdiocese has already come in and taken a number of things from the chapel upstairs, but some things are still there, including pews.

Drexel Hill’s Brian Kelly said so many members of his family had ties to the school.

“I’d love to get my hands on one of the pews if they’re for sale,” Kelly said Friday as he arrived to pick up his daughter from gym practice.

A website allows people to preview items for sale, but nothing goes on sale before 9am on Saturday.

There are some exceptions: areas that are not part of the demolition remain intact and the sale in the Gym and Monastery will take place later.

Tobin expects nostalgia to be a driving force behind sales.

“There are also a lot of people who come to a sale like this just because they graduated here and want to come in and see it again. That’s fine with us,” Tobin said.
