Keeping the ambiance and feeling of the original purpose of the building is important to Mr. Monahan. He is incorporating the school blackboards into his design in keeping with the original purpose of the building. Many locals were sorry and sad to see Meade school close. Many fond memories there. If it can no longer serve as a school at least it will find a new use and not sit vacant and deteriorate. And if there are any spirits to be found in the building I'm sure they are happy ones!

Think about it Pink Eye, you're getting ready to lay your head down and you hear the laughter of children racing in the hallways. Then, the screeching of chalk on the blackboard, OH YEAH, there are people who visit and stay at Haunted Hotels just for the ghostly experiences. When do they plan on opening?
