    The days could be numbered for an historic home in Old Town Manassas.

    On Monday, the city council is scheduled to vote on paying to tear down the 100-year-old house at 9300 Prescott Avenue.

    The house is condemned after falling into disrepair. City officials said they've worked with the owner for 15 years trying to bring the house up to code and eliminate safety issues.

    The home is owned by Dorothy Feaganes of Alexandria, who is in her 80s.

    She offered "no comment" on the city's threat to demolish the structure other than to say she hopes it isn't torn down.
