( 2 ) Abandoned High School (12/17/2016)

Abandoned High School

We venture out to an abandoned high school along with another smaller school right next to it. Opened in September of 1909, was initially developed to incorporate work, study, and play. It was originally a white only school, as black’s weren’t allowed and were instead transferred to different schools. Property tax caps, the city’s low tax collection rates, and significant depopulation have decimated the district’s finances, forcing the school board to make deep cuts in which caused the school to close in 2008.
