Earlier this year, the original building of Forks High School from the 1920s was torn down because of the difficulty and costs to maintain it. At the time, school officials had hoped to preserve the building’s main doorway and integrate it into the new campus construction.
When we were there in August, the building’s facade still stood (as can be seen in the photo above), but now it sounds like it’ll be too costly to maintain it:
The tentative plan would have used the facade as a stand-alone entrance to the new building.
But in the construction proposal accepted on Friday, it was revealed that saving the facade would cost $271,000.
It will be destroyed.
“We would have considered a lower bid, but that’s over a quarter of a million dollars, and we can’t afford it,” said school board president Bill Rohde.
