Every so often we discover some photos in an old folder and we can’t pinpoint exactly where we snapped them. It’s usually a quick roadside stop where one of us shot some photos while the other grabbed sodas out of the cooler — three minutes and we’re gone. This was likely one of those stops.
Somewhere in Walsh County between Grafton and Conway, we stopped and shot this old building — a country school or township hall perhaps. It caught our attention due to the unnatural angle at which it now resides as it collapses in a slow-motion, three decade implosion.
Update: This location has been identified as the former Prairie Center Township School, District #6 at the Pisek Corner in Walsh County, shown on the map below. It burned in 2011 (we took these shots in June of that year) and ruins are all that remain today.
