Sylva Elementary School

Sylva Elementary School

Description
Sylva Elementary School was constructed in 1929 in Sylva, North Carolina to replace an old, rickety wooden structure that served the town's grade-school children. It served in its original form until 1948, when part of the upper floor collapsed due to a lack of proper maintenance, however, it was subsequently renovated and reopened. It served the town until 1974, when it was closed and replaced by Fairview Elementary School. In 1975, it was torn down and the campus developed into Mark Watson Park, which remains today. It shared a campus with Sylva High School until 1960, at which point it took over the former High School buildings, both of which are also now gone. Feel free to use this model as you see fit, on the condition that you contact me first so I know where it is being used (I'd love to see it wherever it ends up), and give me a mention or credit wherever it is used or published. #HistoricArchitecture #School #VanishedAmerica #NorthCarolina
