Abandoned Old Grade School In Florida
Join us today as we are exploring this beautiful abandoned grade school.
Known today as Public School No. 8, it first opened its doors in 1909.
As the city grew, the neighborhood declined. When the Expressway was constructed in the early-1960s, just east of the school. Unfortunately accessibility to the neighborhood was stifled.
The school became a Montessori school in 1991 in an effort to repurpose aging and under-performing schools in blighted neighborhoods.
By the late-1990s, it was the second-oldest public school building in operation and it was in need of a $10 million dollar investment from the school board to continue to operate.
It was decided that the best course of action was to abandon the school in favor of a new building located 17 miles away.
After the new school opened in 2005, Public School No. 8 operated until permanently closing in 2013.

As some of you might know, I’m urban exploration some locations are extremely difficult and sometimes impossible. You never know what you’re going to find and I’m some cases you might be late and the structure has been demolished. I’m other cases security has been tightened due to vagrants and Vandals. Destruction of these historic landmarks is not okay. History is unfortunately being Erased daily. We want to respect the building and locations. Don’t break and enter, don’t take anything but photos and leave nothing but footprints.
I started this hobby as a photographer and the YouTube channel was started to possibly fund my adventures at some point. After seeing the beautiful wonders of our past. The amazing craftsmanship. The artwork created. As an artist I sympathize for those that spent time crafting the building we inhabit daily. The next time you’re in an old building, take a moment to acknowledge the time and skill someone put into it.
