"My Town and Yours" Thoughts and Observations of Mark Lange
Sometimes It's Just Time

There's really nothing to do with the old Clark, Old High School building in downtown Vincennes and the Vincennes Historic Review Board knew that when they approved its demolition. They did make one last attempt to save something of the structure. Board members asked developer Andy Myszak to try to save some of the limestone work on the entrances of the building along Buntin Street, but admitted that will be a streatch. Because of the construction, saving a bunch of the limestone as an entry way for example probably won't happen. And putting up some sort of large monument within the green space left after the demolition is not likely either. There may be a small sign, but don't hold your breath for anything more. By December at the latest demolition will be underway. There will still be the pictures and memories, but it's time for the building to go.
There will be a final time for interested persons to go theough the building this Friday afternoon after the LHS Homecoming parade. Listen to WZDM 92.1 Fm and WZDM.com for more information.
