Inside Monnett

The auction of equipment from Monnett sold more than just furniture. Just about anything that people were willing to buy was for sale. As people removed the bulletin boards, doors, lighting fixtures, and plumbing fixtures, they left a mess behind. If anyone doubts that this building will be demolished, a quick look inside will dispel those doubts. Below is the southern hallway.
 Below is one of the classrooms. I am surprised that they did not find a way to get the metal girders.
 It is ready to be knocked down.

Can anyone take a last look inside the school (or what's left of it)?

Reply to anonymous: Walk up to a window and look in. That is what I did.

It is a bit sad. I enjoyed several years teaching in that building. That was a lot of years ago, however.
