The middle piece at least, built 1908, then a 1905 gymnasium, then a 1940 gynaisum& classrooms, then the 1955 addition to hook the old gym to the rest, ending up a "C" shaped continoius building going from three floors to more as it goes.
It was auctioned off about three years ago for $2,500.oo..the guy who bought it still doesn't know what to do with it.
(Kind of a BIG project for someone who doesn't already have alot of money.)
"You should have bought it, Jim!"
No, I haven't stopped working on my house since I bought it 23 years ago and it's not finished (to my liking) yet!
The old school is so big you could not see all the rooms in it in an hour, even if you were in a hurry.
How any one man could repair or remodel such a huge place defies anyone's logic & pocketbook.

I live near chicago IL which is where the 2010 haunt will be. 2010 River Grove IL 60171.

The building your looking at is about 3 hrs south from me. closer to St louis and indianapolis. The school is up to code. sprinklered and the mayor and town officials are behind me.

Trying to find my camera so I can take pics of this years haunt.

Hope everyone had a great 4th!

I had my location set up and material ready to be delivered then the landlord backed out of the deal… Its been a week or two now and I have some meetings set up tomorrow. Some promising locations.. Will keep everyone updated... Hope everyone is having a safe summer.

That SUCKS Pete!

I suppose you have to look on the bright side and be happy you had not started building yet and THEN run into problems with the landlord/town etc...

We have to move our entire haunt after being in the same location for the last three years...So I feel for 'ya.

Keep your chin up & keep plugging along. Best wishes for finding your new venue soon!

Too bad! That was an awesome building. Everything happens for a reason, so maybe something better is waiting for you. Good luck!
