All good things must come to an end... and that end as seen through the eyes of urban explorers typically seems to be in the hands of property developers. Such was the case for Erin Public School. The school was built in 1923 on a parcel of land along what is now known as Main Street in Erin, Ontario. It opened the following year under the name of Erin Continuation School. In 1926 the school was upgraded and the facility began offering grades 9-12. The school closed in 1999 when the facility was moved into the former high school building on nearby Daniel Street. As with many vacant schools across Ontario, Erin Public School became a magnet for vandals who smashed the windows to gain entry in the building. It sat vacant under the ownership of local developer Gary Langen for almost 17 years until being purchased by developers Tom Dolson and Joe Dettbarn in July of 2017. Dolson and Dettbarn plan to build up to 40 condos on the site of the former school.

timo explorer Currently being demolished, not much left, but a few good photos from outside the perimeter are possible if you hurry. I expect it to be gone within days.

Unknown User This is still there. I went in it yesterday after finding an unlocked door. I think they are starting to work inside but not much has been done.

TheGirlNextDoor Still standing as of today. This school is being used as a summer camp, walked right through the newer side where the kids were being rowdy in the gym. Unfortunately doors to the older part were locked. Did not take interior pictures due to the children, maybe if I did someone would have asked me why I was there! Tight security at camp...
