Here is the post that was up on Facebook recently:

COMMENTS

There were lots of comments and questions regarding this property in the post. Some people wanted to see the facility turned back into a school; some heard rumors that it was condemned, and some said the pictures needed to be updated as there were no longer appliances in the building.

For the right business though, this space could be something amazing! Maybe a home for senior citizens; maybe a rehab facility? With two gyms, and a stage, perhaps in can be a community event center, where they can hold community classes.
