11 Abandoned Schools In Idaho That Nature Is Reclaiming

There’s something beautiful and mysterious about the decrepit ruins of centuries-old buildings. But there’s also something a little haunting as well when those buildings are the remnants of former schoolhouses – they each each have a story to tell and seem to echo with the ancient, carefree laughter of long-gone schoolchildren. Today, these school buildings across the state are stunning historical reminders of Idaho’s earliest pioneer days.
