The Warren Co Christian School was interested but there is some sort of restriction about that. Since both Pittsfield Elementary and Youngsville Elementary were identical schools built at the same time, Is there no concern about the Asbestos in Youngsvilles Elementary school where the students are attending school every day? Weird?

sad to see a building with so many options be torn down. it's too bad someone couldnt utilize the building into a place for college night classes or even a charter school like Tidioute has. my late grandfather was one of the many carpenters that worked on both this and the former Youngsville elementary school that was added onto a few years in order to create the middle school.

USerious makes good points. After ten years (and allowing the pipes to freeze and burst), the WCCBI has had plenty of time to do something constructive with the building and has failed to do so. And BTW, didn't the PA Game Commission invest money into a project on the school property? What happened to that?

The original brick structure that the "new" Pittsfield school replaced back in the 1960's, still stands and is utilized to this day, It makes no sense to tear down this school. Why dont they donate the school to Pittsfield Township? It is my understanding that the Smith family donated the property that the school was built on. If they feel the building has no value, then the land should go back to the rightful owners.
