Starkweather school

Mark and I were in the right place at the right time and got to tour Starkweather School the other day.   They are closing it down, I suspect they may be putting it up for sale.   I am very hopeful that something good happens to this great school, and someone re-purposes the building without destroying the great details!

These are the tiles in the entryway.

How many schools do you know that have a beautiful tile fireplace?

Amusing animal tiles parade above the firebox.

This is an old, faded drawing of how the school originally looked, before they blocked in part of the windows and tool out the rounded doors.   Starkweather school is a wonderful part of our history, I hope it stays with us.

    Hi, I’ve a couple of weeks off from work and have been working on a story about my meditative misadventures down behind the Starkweather School over the summer. How I like the lonely abandon feel and how one can sense the approaching change coming… Anyway, I was searching for a picture of the school and the link brought me here. Spent more time than planned looking around rather than writing (oh well…) Really enjoyed it!
