This c.1902 abandoned school for sale in zoned residential and is located in a beautiful neighborhood in Paxton, Illinois. It is a for sale by owner.

Although it is not livable and needs a complete rehabilitation, the school deserves to be saved. The owner has reduced the price substantially since putting it on the market in March of 2018. Hopefully, it will not succumb to the same fate as the historic Paxton-Buckley- Loda Eastlawn school building. That school was designed by renowned architect Joseph William Royer and built in 1925. It was razed in November 2019.
