Earlier this year, the New Carlisle Historical Society had planned on offering tours of the Madison St. School as a fund raiser.

In April, we went with Fire Chief Steve Trusty, Mayor Mike Lowrey and Historical Society President David McWhorter to tour the school to see if it would be safe for visitors to enter.

Trusty determined that the building would not be safe for visitors and condemned the building shortly after our visit.

These are the pictures we took, and very well may be the last pictures of the inside of the school.
