The apartment where Lee Harvey Oswald once lived in Dallas is being ordered razed.

— Dallas has begun demolishing an apartment complex where Lee Harvey Oswald briefly lived before the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

A city attorney wrote Monday in a letter to the property’s owner that the building will be torn down after it's tested for asbestos.

The letter says demolition will begin immediately after the testing is completed.

The city won a court order in May requiring Jane Bryant to tear down the uninhabited 10-unit, two-story apartment complex built in 1925.

However, the city says, Bryant failed to act in the allotted time and that allowed the structure to become a “nuisance” and a health hazard.

Lee and Marina Oswald lived in the building from November 1962 until March 1963.

JFK was slain Nov. 22, 1963.
