Abandoned, 1941

020815

One of my co-workers tipped me off about this place. (You can read that story here.)

According to the Texas Historical Society, this school was closed in 1941, when the district merged with one in a bigger town. Obviously the place was well-constructed, since it’s lasted three quarters of a century without use or upkeep. From the looks of it, though, I’d guess it won’t be long now before it’s just a pile of brick.

  1. Interesting to see it like this. Is that ceiling pressed metal of some kind? Sure looks like it, but it could just be from decay.
