MOUNT VERNON — Only one location made the “lost” list of historic sites in Knox County announced Thursday by the Knox County Landmarks Foundation, while two made the “saved” list and seven are on the “endangered” list.

The sole property on the lost list is the Friendship Chapel Church on Delaware Road. Built in 1871, it was torn down in January of this year, although the church bell was preserved in the cemetery across the road.
