    Always disliked the sneaky way the school board demolished this school. It could have made a great home for the museum……………Mary-Beth

    • Hey Mary-Beth. It was a disappointing process and it seemed to happen too quickly. The school would have made an excellent museum, art gallery, community centre… same with the section of the junior high built in the ’80s with the gym, home ec room etc. If anything, we seem to move too quickly to demolish buildings.
