    Looks like Parkersburg is the closest decent size town. This could make the most marvelous community within itself. Condos/apts upstairs and downstairs shops including small grocer, pharmacy, etc. Has so many interesting little cubby holes. It would be a shame to not put this building to good use in another capacity.

  2. Part apartments with no cost but your knowledge. The rest of the school you set up as a place to truly learn, where you teach cooking skills, carpentry, and other actual skills required for living. Can also hire teachers but the idea is to rehabilitate the entire community and make it self sufficient. A gem. It could be so pretty.

    It certainly is big enough to dream of many possibilities. She looks pretty solid still. I’m wondering why the mattresses were in there? Maybe for the workers? They look very new. If she was mine I’d make her a fabric store. Lots and lots of fabric and books for when I wanted to learn a sewing technique. Teach classes and lend out room for charitable sewing needs. And a wonderful weekend sewing getaway…I do hope someone with a wonderful plan can make her beautiful again.

    • Oh yes! but it’s big enough to teach ALL fiber arts..rooms for each: quilting, knitting, crochet, embroidery, spinning, weaving, rug hooking, felting, etc. Then a big shop where the students could buy supplies and sell their wares. The cafeteria could be a coffee/sandwich shop…decorated with completed crafts. If only I were younger and rich!

      every project has its challenges and purpose …
      I like this place for the “deep pockets type challenge”

      but I like JBird’s idea … but I still say this could be the perfect starter home for some one with XL family to build thar respective dream living space and hobby rooms

    I’ll bet those bathroom stalls had marble dividers. Pity they’re gone. What an intriguing place.

    I wonder about that huge gym attached. From the outside it looks to be butted right up like most would be with a connecting door/s. Loads of potential
