Cobalt Coleman Public School was built in the seventies and due to a declining attendance, closed for good around 2012. It had become problematic for the town to keep kids and squatters out over the years. On the day of my visit I was able to gain entry and once inside there was paint, graffiti and broken glass everywhere. On September 3rd, 2020 the fire department were called out to the school which was engulfed by a suspicious fire. They were pouring gallons of water on the school but couldn’t extinguish the flames. They actually brought in an excavator and tore the building apart to help put out the fire. Actually on the morning of the fire in question, a bylaw officer was supposed to meet with the building owner to get the school secured again. The squatters have since taken up residence in the town’s vacant high school which I couldn’t get inside at the time. I’m not sure if anything is left standing of Cobalt Coleman but I wanted to document my explore of this once iconic school.
