Arena in 1992
Abandoned as of 2004
Arena was only the second true ghost town we ever visited, back in 2004. At that time, the school had already been torn down and we were never able to locate some large photos of it, until now.
Thanks to these photos contributed by Dale Fisher, we can now see Arena as it looked in 1992. There are a few interesting comparisons to be made with our photos from 2004:
This was the Arena school — a place we really regret missing out on. You can see the school looks remarkably better in this 1992 image as versus the image contributed by Stephen Berg in our Arena gallery… the windows are still intact in this image, and the structure just looks more stable. Someone did a real number on this school in the twelve years between ’92 and ’04.
A question we’d still like to answer… what year did the last full-time resident move out of Arena?
