Elmhurst grads walk through high school ahead of demolition
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne's NBC) -- Elmhurst High School graduates and others who love the school got a chance Friday to take a guided walk through the school before the complex is torn down.
Elmhurst High School alumni, who graduated between 1929 and 1969 strolled the halls of the abandoned school Friday.
Elmhurst was closed in 2010, the victim of budget cuts and redistricting plans.
After a site inspection and evaluating the building's state of disrepair, the company decided that future use of the building was simply not an option.
More memories will be made on Saturday when graduates from 1970 to 2010 will come for walk-throughs to celebrate a place that won't be around for much longer.
