Back To School

Decided to head out to take pictures after work last Wednesday, and ended up wandering around town trying to find something interesting to point the camera at.  I eventually ended up at the old North Little Rock High School Building, which I'm a bit familiar with.  I graduated from there awhile back (actually 15 years ago, yikes).

NLRHS - West Campus (or Ole Main) was first opened back in 1929 and cost a total of $750,000.  The building is an "outstanding example of the 'zigzag moderne' trend of the Art Deco style of architecture. Featuring a massive, centrally placed tower of a ziggurat configuration and adorned with geometric-patterned ornament, the building exemplifies the design characteristics of the then-fashionable Art Deco style."  The tower was long-ago closed off to students, but it does have one resident.  Apparently a ghost of a student, who died in the 1950s, is said to haunt the tower and the stage.

But I stood on the grounds for about 20 minutes taking pictures of the old building, and never saw any ghostly spirits lurking about.
