On April 24th, the old Gunlock School house was demolished. Many residents were very emotional about the loss as quite a few had gone to school there. Earlier in the month, a crew was brought in to remove the asbestos from the building so deconstruction crews could safely tear down the historical site.
In keeping with the donation contract, the some of the space provided will be used for an updated fire station equipped with the necessary assets to protect the community from the ever present fire danger. Even though the land will be used for a good cause, every time a Gunlock resident walks or drives by, they will remember the quaint little building that started so many of their educations.
