ALL VIDEOS GO LIVE AT 12:30AM EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME. I drove over to Burlington High School to see what it looked like. Admittedly, I was somewhat surprised to see such tall (maybe 7-8′ tall) fencing around it. I did figure EnviroVantage would be closer to demolition at this point. Looks like I was correct. SeeingContinue reading “Burlington High School: Soon to be Demolished”

Burlington High School Staging Area & Solar Panels
As I finished filming my video on BHS, I saw the crates of what turned out to be solar panels. I don’t recall them being in the parking lot the last time I filmed here. I saw a photo online of A Building’s roof. There were solar panels on it. Mystery solved! It also appearedContinue reading “Burlington High School Staging Area & Solar Panels”
Burlington High School: More Updates
I still don’t know when BHS will be demolished. That said, I do know EnviroVantage is abating the asbestos in the buildings. The asbestos is in both the floor and ceiling tiles. Once they are finished with abatement, demolition should begin. And after that, they will remediate the ground underneath the school. This is becauseContinue reading “Burlington High School: More Updates”
Burlington High School Kitchen: To Be Demolished!
I was granted permission to film the INTERIOR of a few areas inside of A Building. These areas included the auditorium, cafeteria and gymnasium. I also filmed the kitchen and a very short video of the area where the switchboard operator, Pearl Milisci, had worked. I say “area” because that space had been enlarged. ThisContinue reading “Burlington High School Kitchen: To Be Demolished!”
Burlington High School Cafeteria: Soon To Be Demolished!

Nowadays, round tables are the norm. Each seats eight students. I have been told that the cafeteria is actually quieter now. Students are noContinue reading “Burlington High School Cafeteria: Soon To Be Demolished!”
According to the woman who escorted me around A Building, the newer bleachers will be removed and used in the new gym. They may need to cut them down some because they are too wide. I took two gym classes when I was at BHS. The first one was an aerobics class and the onlyContinue reading “BHS Gymnasium”
Burlington High School Auditorium
As I was recording my video in the Burlington High School auditorium, I had wanted to share stories of my time in the Drama Club at BHS. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen and it was out of my control. Thus, you will be able to find those stories right here. I shall share stories and hopefully,Continue reading “Burlington High School Auditorium”
Woodbury Graded School: National Register!
National Park Service: “The town of Woodbury had been served by several small scattered schoolhouses until 1914 when the centrally located Woodbury Graded School was constructed. Architecturally, it is an excellent example of an early 20th-century rural Vermont graded school. Its construction and history embody the economic and social history of the community, while itsContinue reading “Woodbury Graded School: National Register!”
