Old Concrete Grade School Fire

The old Grade school in my town just a little ways from my house caught fire today, destroying the building which has stood since 1910. Im sad to see it go because it was something i have had seen everyday for my whole life.

It is sad that a few imature teenagers destroyed a peice of history as old and as spaecial as that. It was a interesting place for visitors to see, me living their since birth it is still upseting to think someone could've done it! age 15

Being from Niagara, we traveled through Concrete this summer and looked at the remains of what looked like some old school. Checked the internet for the story. WOW. Couldn't believe what we saw. I'm sure the old grade school will never be rebuilt.

I was just up there a week ago on the 20th visiting relatives, and I'm still shocked. I always loved that place, even though it was a major eyesore. I'm glad I got a picture when I did.
