It’s amazing how simply looking at a photo can take you back to memories when you were just a kid going to school. That was exactly how I felt as I scrolled through the photos below of this abandoned school in Rusk County, Texas.
It brought me back to the noise of the overhead projector as our teacher would try to teach us something new. Or the sound of that loud pencil sharper that always made sure our writing utensil was ready to take notes throughout the school day. While I have never stepped foot into this specific school before so many schools were all the same, so it’s easy to feel nostalgic when looking through these wonderful photos that were captured by photographer, Kathleen Greer.
Who Owns This Abandoned School in Rusk County?
While I am not 100% certain, according to comments on Facebook this school was left abandoned in the 1990’s and was bought by a religious group. No one is really sure if that same group still owns the property now.
