We paid a brief visit to Argusville High School today and found things have changed quite a bit since our last visit in 2011. The school was in a terrible state of disrepair and had been thoroughly vandalized when we last saw it, but it has since been boarded-up.
The rusting twin fire escapes have been torn down, leaving the front of the school as it originally looked before they were erected. Every door and window has now been boarded-up tight by the owner. We spoke with him briefly during our visit and he told us the combination of vandalism and some questionable modifications by a previous owner contributed to some terrible water damage inside the school.
See what it looked like in 2011 here.
UPDATE: A visitor tells us the last class graduated from this school in 1997 when it was known as Cass Valley North High School. This school is featured in our hardcover book, Ghosts of North Dakota, Volume 1.
