After almost five decades, the American Red Cross is selling their historic building at 143 North Broadway in Nyack.

The property is being offered at $550,000. 

According to the deed, the American Red Cross purchased the building in 1965. The property was originally purchased for $1,500 in 1882 by newlyweds Julia and Garrit Blauvelt. Garrit was a physician and surgeon in that house for more than 50 years; he was also the director of the Nyack Hospital.

Garrit and Julia built their home around 1884, and over the years made several additions to the original structure. The Queen Anne-style home still retains many of the original period details.  

Although the building is zoned in a residential two-family area, the Nyack building department said the property can either be restored back to a residential dwelling or it can continue as a commercial building. 

As for the American Red Cross? They plan on keeping a presence in the area.
