On a quiet Sunday afternoon at the Huron County fairgrounds there are still many lines.

Without people their are still many lines with the afternoon light retreating to the west.

End of the road for Willard High School as the school closed it’s doors for it’s final graduating class of 2015.  Thank-you for your service from 1925-2015.  My Dad was the first art teacher at Willard High School from 1959 -1985 and my sister and I both attended and graduated from WHS.  The building may change but the memories never will.

I love the way they have incorporated the new space with the original building at the Cleveland Museum of Art

In February I had the opportunity to tour this old building before its demolition in November 2012.

The building was erected in the early 1900’s -I believe 1911- and had a mural that was a detail of Washington Crossing the Delaware that was water damaged from a roof leak.

Empty City Council chambers.

Dark rooms with only window light.

Turn of the century arches.

Close-up of the mural and the water damage.

Detail of damage below the mural.

Darken hallway leading up to the second floor.

Door into the old jail.

Door into the old Fire Department.

I’m sorry that my photographs were not of a better quality of the interior of the building.  There was no electricity in the building.  The light was very low or nonexistent and I was overwhelmed by the experience and had a hard time of recording what I saw and felt.  (Maybe that’s for another blog post).  I had planned on going back and shooting the interior again but never made the opportunity happen.  Now it is all history and memories.   Like the song Bookends by Simon and Garfunkel. Time it was, and what a time it was.  It was a time of innocence, a time of confidences. Long ago, it must be, I have a photograph.  Preserve your memories, they’re all that’s left you!
