    My wife’s family owns this school. It is not abandoned! Taxes are paid each year for the school and property. The family that used to live there (my wife’s family) are all doing extremely well. Some owning multiple companies, pharmacists, Engineers etc.

    Many people are saying it was burnt and that is was lead to it being abandoned. Is this true?

    Went to school there in the early 1940s, teacher was Ms Ann

    Can anyone tell me the exact date of the fire?
    I think it was in the summer of 1988 or 1989
