Demolition Begins On Wisner-Pilger Middle School

PILGER, Neb.-- Demolition began on the Wisner-Pilger Middle School at 8 a.m. Friday morning after the school board voted to tear down the historic building.

The historic building was destroyed when 200 mile an hour winds tore through the town.

"It's a pretty tremendous amount of damage. Pretty catastrophic. Roof blown off most areas," Superintendent Chad Boyer said.

The building is nearly a century old and for a long time held grades K-12. Boyer says a lot of generations have come through its doors and many people have memories of walking through the school's halls.

Three portable classrooms for the students and staff will be located near the elementary school in Wisner.

Classes are scheduled to begin on August 14.
