Here are some photos of the dismantling of the oldest building at my high school (Dee-Mack High School in Mackinaw, Illinois). Most of the other buildings have long been town down and replaced and this one was the last to be torn down and replaced. These photos are over a year old now.
It’s been over 20 years since I hung out in this portion of the building with all of my high school friends. Some of my fondest memories from this particular building include working and goofing off in the computer lab, ditto in the yearbook staff office, ditto in geometry class, and ditto the library and in study hall. Oh, and I almost forgot all about the cafeteria in the basement. Well, it was a lunch room anyways. Calling it a cafeteria implies that they actually cooked food in there. And who could forget the big Shuttle mural. Thanks to my high school art teacher, Mrs Schultz, for forwarding these great photos to me. Click on a photo to see a full sized version.

It says “Mackinaw High School 1914” on the front of the building.
