Its sad that Hamiltons public school board is a joke and are demolishing not only this building, but other historic schools which should be preserved.
Such a shame. They could have sold it and had it converted to condos or apartments.
I'm not sure about a murder, but the location is about level with the ground by now: demo is probably complete.
I've been watching this place for a few years now & am amazed how bad it's gotten. Never been able to gain entry & like you say, plenty of activity around there. I believe a guy was murdered behind the school a few years back.
