Crumbling School Building In Denison Declared Unsafe

Posted:

DENISON, TX -- City officials have declared an old school building that closed decades ago is now unsafe and ready to tear down.

Building inspectors say pieces are crumbling from the old Central Ward School, and could hurt or kill someone.

It is estimated it would cost the city about $200,000 to demolish the school at 715 West Sears Street, just off West Morton Street.

The school closed back in 1979 and is now in the hands of a private owner. Council members will discuss the issue on Monday evening at 6 p.m. at City Hall.
