Just a Random School I Ran Across.

I have no idea the history of this school but when you run across something like this with the front door obviously open you have to take advantage of it and check it out.

The syringe caps laying out front made me a little cautious but no one live or dead was found inside.

Re: Just a Random School I Ran Across.

The British film industry made a comeback, so why aren't they finding exciting places like this to film like the Americans do?

Sorry, I missed this. Oak Hill WV. The same town where it was discovered that Hank Williams was no longer with us.

Re: Just a Random School I Ran Across.

Some extra information from AtlasObscura -

http://www.atlasobscura.com/places/glen-jean-school

Oak Hill, West Virginia
Glen Jean School
An abandoned 1920s school with a mysterious history

The history of the abandoned Glen Jean School is unclear, at best. There are reports that it had been used as an elementary school and a high school. Some of the remnants that are left on the wall suggest that its last incarnation may have been (at least partially) an elementary school. There are even some reports that it was used as a hospital for a short period, which contribute to a few local legends.

This structure, along with the McKell Bank, which sits just down the road, is one of the few remaining structures left from the early days of the New River mining. However, unlike the bank, the school sits abandoned with lots of remnants to be found, including some graffiti from 1966.
The town of Glen Jean, West Virginia was founded by Thomas McKell, the bitter rival of Captain William Thurmond, founder of neighboring Thurmond (now a ghost town). In order to compete in the coal mining trade with his neighbor, McKell needed to start building a community for his workers toiling in the mines, which included a school house for the families. The first school house burnt down in 1924; which was most likely Thurmond’s fault—they seemed to like setting each other’s property on fire. The building that stands today came shortly after, built in 1925, with the second*floor added in 1926.

The school remained in continuous operation until 1997. The building was*purchased in 1999 to serve as business offices and visitor center for the Thurmond, Glen*Jean, and Great New River Railroad, but was closed in 2006 when the railroad was sold.
There are also many accounts of the property being haunted, which some claim are from its past history of being a hospital, and others claim from a brutal murder that occurred there many years ago.

Know Before You Go
If you are visiting Thurmond, which can be found via Google Maps, the school will be on your route just after the McKell Bank.

Re: Just a Random School I Ran Across.

Where I am from in KY there are many abandoned places. Coal was the main source of economy here. Now we have whole abandoned cities that have pools, ball rooms, schools, etc. if I didn't work 7 days a week I would love to go exploring.
