Pendleton - The fate of an historic school building is still up in the air after South Madison Community School Corp. officials said they likely will appeal a recent court decision – and move ahead with demolition.
SMCSC Board President Chris Boots said that while the school board had not yet met to discuss the latest ruling, the building “could still come down,” and that the board will most likely maintain its stance regarding the need to demolish the structure.
At the center of the controversy is the building commonly known to as the “high-rise,” a three-story structure located at 301 S. East St. It was built in 1936 with New Deal money and is situated in the middle of two occupied elementary schools.
