This location has been labeled as Demolished, and therefore can be viewed by anyone.
This location took some time and effort including at least six visits.

The contractor was willing to let me inside but his boss said there was 'absolutely no way' anyone was getting inside due to asbestos removal underway. I had to find my own way inside.

The location was sealed up tight after the crew left every day. I finally managed to get inside when they demolished the second gym, leaving a hole behind with a stairway that led into the school.

Inexplicably on my next visit there, a wooden board had been removed from one of the doors which made access even easier.

Demolition began June 29th, 2010 and was quick.

     Future Plans
    There is a new Green environmentally friendly school just feet away from this location. It may become parking or become the site of another business in the core of Lively.
