Demolition Continues at Bruce-Monroe — Last Remnant of Old Monroe School Now Gone

Demolition at the Bruce-Monroe site

District representatives who told area residents that demolition would continue at the Bruce-Monroe site have been true to their word. The heavy equipment is back and the site is being cleared. Current estimates have the site cleared and ready for interim development by May 1, 2010.

The first area to be razed was the final remnant of the original Monroe school, which had been saved and connected to the newer Bruce-Monroe school. You can see images of the auditorium prior to demolition here>>

Below are two more images of the demolition, as well as a map showing the outline of the original Monroe school. The auditorium was in the northwest portion of the property.
