These Then-And-Now Photos Of This Defunct School Near Cleveland Will Leave You Speechless
Here in Cleveland, we know the term Rust Belt all too well. It refers to a certain state of disrepair clinging to a city ridden with declining industrial roots. Cleveland, a steel-producing city that is intrinsically linked to the Rust Belt, rose from the ashes of industry and revitalized the city with a stunning culture that has transformed entire neighborhoods. The rebirth that occurred in Cleveland was not unusual, as changes like this have occurred throughout the state. Many cities have seen their own structures find a new life, and some, like this one landmark institution, were once in a state of total neglect. You won’t believe how the ruins of this former school near Cleveland were transformed.
