Partly roofless shell of an elementary school. Not excessively large, perhaps ten rooms when they were all still standing. A small gymnaterium is on one end of the building.

    The jagged remains of the burned-out shell have an appealing quality. I found it to be well worth the time I spent there.

     Future Plans
    Unless there is some pressing need for the land -- and there's a lot of open land around and few people, and less business -- it will probably continue to rot.

    Update 10/17/08 -- it's gone. I didn't believe it when I drove past, but it's completely vanished. I can barely even tell where it used to be.
