Muscatine elementary school set for demolition

Posted: Updated:

School officials sell old furniture, equipment and other fixtures in the old Jefferson Elementary school in Muscatine.

Now comes the demolition.

The inventory sale was held Thursday and Friday, bringing many former students to the school to buy nostalgic pieces of their past.

On the auction block was everything from desks and lockers to doors and kitchen equipment.

A new 66,000 square foot Jefferson Elementary opened to students at the beginning of the school year in September, only feet from the old building.

The Muscatine Community School District has hired a firm to deconstruct and demolish the building.
