Pleasantview School, Washington Township, Illinois

Update: See the school again in July of 2021.

Rural America is not without its abandoned buildings, as can be seen in the abandoned school house near my family’s farm in Illinois. Tucked away on back road, it is left to decay in obscurity.

See earlier pictures of the school here; little has changed over the last year.

What do the owners of this idyllic farm feel about the abandoned school? Indifferent? Annoyed?

Some beer connoisseurs apparently have been partying near the school, as evidenced by this empty Bud Light case.
