This Abandoned Utah High School Was Once A Utah Icon – But It Will Soon Be Gone
Granite High school opened its doors to students in South Salt Lake in 1907, and was a vibrant part of the community for more than 100 years. Sadly, the school closed its doors forever in 2009, and has remained vacant ever since.
While developers and politicians fought over this piece of property on the corner of 500 E 3300 S., alumni and local residents have waged their own war to keep the school from being demolished. Despite their best efforts, Granite High School is in the process of demolition now…and will soon be gone forever.
I didn’t attend Granite High School, but I have memories of my high school’s football team suffering an embarrassing loss to the Granite Farmers on the field there. Do you have memories of Granite High? Share your memories and photos with us in the comments.
