Poasttown Elementary School holds so many memories, not only for me and my family but for the 80 years this building has stood here and served our community. Now it needs our help...
This School has been my home for 14 years, not only has this school been my home , it is a historical landmark. Myself , Brenda and my kids all attended school here, This is only place my grand kids know as our home. We have open our home up to the community as a safe haven to ride out storms, provided a place for our local fire/police to train. There is just so much we have done for this location and losing this location would be detrimental not only to us but to everyone.
In 2004 this was not even a livable location, This building had become a hangout for The Homeless and teenage kids, Our first 6 months I dont think we spent a night in here alone without having to run people out of the building. But through nights of hard work we turned this into our home. Every dime spent on fixing and repairing this building was from Brenda and I, we never had grants or fund raisers for us. We even put 90 sq. of shingles on this building at our expense. Over the years the land contract holder let the building go into tax foreclosure, I went to try to buy it at the sheriff sale and was out bid by the original owner so the $147,000 that I have paid on the building went up in dust. Now I am being offered the building back again for $125,000 so I was ready to give up and let the building that we have worked so hard to bring back to life go dormant once again...But the community and all of the people in the paranormal do not want to lose access to this building so we are trying to purchase it outright so we are the owners with no land contracts. We lived here for 6 years before I was aware of anything paranormal and thats when our lives changed here...... While working on updating this to be a home, In 2010 the paranormal decided to let me know it was there home too. So with that we welcomed the paranormal into our home and we welcomed the public to investigate our home. And as many of you may know I'm not a man to ask for help, but with the tables turning I need to ask for your help. We need to save this school for the generations to come and enjoy just as other have.
There no way I can provide 14 years of this story into this limited space. please visit www.poastownschool.com for history details and many other facts about this location.. please feel free to ask me any questions and PLEASE lets save Poasttown!!!!
