Remembering the old Red Deer Industrial School

The first time I saw the Indistrial School was in the 19060’s. It was a large white stone building. It was 1973 before I next saw it.

Someone had bought the land and built a high wooden fence around it, effectively cutting off all access to it. While the high fence was around it, the school was torn down.

What a shame that such a historical building was not protected.
