Central High School

Copyright St. Louis Patina --2

It’s darn near impossible to get onto the street in front of Yeatman High School, known to many as the former Central High School, despite its location being far into the North Side.  Due to the labyrinth of blocked-off and one-way streets, you have to drive around in circles to get to the front.

Even in its vandalized and vacant state, it shows the influence of predecessors in England, many of which I saw on my recent travels to Scotland and England.  It is a shame that it sits empty.  See the deterioration by looking at these older photos at Built St. Louis and comparing them to the last week of February.

Update: I changed the name of the high school to Central, from its earlier Yeatman out of recognition that the building was primarily known for most of its history by that name.
