Markham Abandoned School House circa 1902
Located just north of the ever expanding Markham and Richmond Hill area sits this abandoned Section School No.7. It was accessible, yet well boarded up, minus an open basement door. An original picket fence section ran along the back of the property, and I could almost sense the ghosts of children playing on the grounds. School sections were created and financed through the tax base of neighbouring farms. The building appeared to be in good condition and a great candidate for preservation. It's future is not known.
