It was a sad day for some in one Nanaimo neighbourhood as an historic landmark fell victim to the wrecking ball.
Harewood School was built in 1914 and was said to be a good example of Edwardian-era school building with a classical revival influence.
But the Nanaimo school district opted to close the school in 2004 due to declining enrollment and today the building came down.
The school is located on Howard Avenue in Nanaimo.
It’s one of four school district owned buildings in the heritage registry.
No word on any future plans for the property.
