COME TRACK OUR HERITAGE AND BE PART OF OUR FUTURE
Gone, but the memories are not forgotten
In late 2017, the borough started the process of acquiring the Gordon School. The school operated from 1890 until 1974. Since its closing, it has sat empty and age had taken over. Numerous attempts to restore the building to its former glory had failed. As the property sat, it had become blighted and a hazard to surrounding properties. On January 22, 2018, demolition had begun on the old landmark. Demolition was completed on January 24th. The fate of the now vacant property is still open for discussion. Residents have suggested making the area into a quiet place with benches to read a book or relax while others recommended turning the area into a playground. One silver lining in this cloud is the recovery of the buildings cornerstone and time capsule. The time capsule is set to be opened at the Memorial Day ceremony held at the Gordon Municipal Hall on May 28th. For more information, please call the borough office at 570-875-4909.
