Willson School in Cleveland Ohio

This is the abandoned Willson school in Cleveland, Ohio. It's currently on the list of schools to be torn down by the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, so it won't be around for long. The school opened in 1903 and closed in 2005.

Because the school has only been closed for five years, there are a lot of artifacts inside like desks, cabinets, books, classwork and posters. One of the bulletin boards had a big collage of "Willson's 100th Year!" with pictures and articles about the school. Then two years later it was abandoned. Sad.
