Drive by visit: Netherby School

I took some advantage of some free time on December 15, 2016 to take a run out to the countryside. I felt the need to get out for a run. It was a dumb idea. The weather was damn cold. I was looping my way back when I remembered this school kind of near Hanna, Alberta. I had been here before last summer and I heard rumours that it was demolished. It was good to see it was how I remembered it. It is abandoned. This building was used to film scenes in a movie "Why Shoot The Teacher?".

  1. The Netherby school was closed as an educational institution about 1964. "Why Shoot The Teacher" was filmed in 1976. The movie was set in 1932, so I feel the interior looked a little "too modern" for an impoverished rural area at the time.
    The whole movie can be seen here:
