On March 15, 2013, the Helena Public Schools Board of Trustees closed Central School because of an engineer's report that said the building would suffer serious structural damage in the event of an earthquake. 

Though some parts of the school remained frozen in time, vandals left their mark throughout the building. 

Here is a recent look inside the school, before a demolition crew started tearing it down.
