Beauregard Middle School

This is Beauregard Middle School, at least according to the most recent sign out front of the place. The more permanent sign on the building itself indicates it used to be Beauregard High School, but given its ornate architectural style I have to wonder how old this building might be, and whether it began life as a plantation house. It was surrounded on all sides by beautiful live oaks, which made it difficult to photograph the outside, and by chain link fencing, which made it
dicey to try to get inside. Given the remote area of St. Bernard Parish where this building stands, I was tempted to try anyway, but there was some kind of county services facility right next door with maintenance employees on the grounds, so I gave up. It's a beautiful old building, though.

wow, that is an impressive building. My guess would be that it was built as a high school, and later turned into a middle school after a newer cookie cutter high school was built somewhere in that school district. We have several in our town that have been designated for different grade levels now.

That is an absolutely beautiful building. Too bad we don't build structures to look like that any more. Now, they're prefab, made to order, cookie cutter boxes made to last a few years and then throw away.

By looking at the integrity of that fence, and the fact that there was some activity next door, I'd say you made the right choice by not trying to get in there right now. Maybe at some point though, I'd love to see the inside of that one.

Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools speak because they have to say something.
