Razing of old Ravenna High nearly final

Published:

Nearly all that remains of the old Ravenna High School on Clinton Street in Ravenna is this stairway leading up to the original section of the school, which was built in 1921. As of Thursday, just the staircase and a small portion of Whittaker Hall along Main Street was standing. Contractors began demolition on the structure in October, starting with the Coll Annex, which was constructed in 1957. The Portage Port Authority agreed to develop the site if the district would clear the land. A market study on the 5-acre parcel is pending. The old school closed at the end of the 2009-10 school year. The new high school on North Chestnut Street opened in the summer of 2010.
