I read that the imperial pools building will be torn down soon, which is good since it has been empty for as long as I can remember.

The building has always intrigued me though.

Does anyone have any information on the building as to what it was originally build for or the history behind it? I can't find anything about it at all on google other than a couple pictures of the front.

I would love to see what is inside of it.

try public records. search in tax records for real estate. dig a little, you'll find it. maybe this is a sstart:

if that doesn't work hit the ohio county clerk of courts.

I'm pretty sure the Imperial Pools building used to be an elementary school in the early to mid-20th century. I can't remember the name of the school though.

From what I hear it used to be an old school. And guess what? I have pictures of the inside! Oh it was a photographer's paradise! I will warn you though, a few are a tad blurry as there wasn't a lot of light.
I am really sad it was torn down. Yes, it was an eyesore, but it was pretty bad!
