A Final Look at the Abandoned Dalrymple School in Albion Before Demotion
Dalrymple School a former elementary that has sat abandoned in the city of Albion since the early 80s is finally slated for demotion.
The crumbling building and the surrounding land is owned by Calhoun County. WBCK reports,
The school was built more than 100 years ago and named for a long time school board member, Charles Dalrymple. The school was boarded up in 1982, and the Calhoun County Treasurer’s Office foreclosed and took possession of the property on April 1, 2016. A press release from the treasurer’s office says that they have been working in concert with the Calhoun County Land Bank Authority to conduct environmental testing and finalize plans for demolition. The demolition process will be led by HOMRICH, a demolition and environmental contractor headquartered in Carleton, Michigan. HOMRICH will use a wet demolition process to contain any dust or small debris. Demolition will take three to four weeks to complete.
Take a look at what’s left of the building.
