Caldwell School

Here stands the remains of the Caldwell School in Youngstown, Ohio at the heart of what is referred to as the “Rust Belt” in the middle of America.  Before the economic downturn in the 1970′s, Youngstown was a booming area with multiple steel plants surrounding a town which seemed to be on the verge of becoming another metropolis in the Midwest.  Unfortunately as the town fell apart, many schools like Caldwell have met a similar demise as the the steel industry has moved out of the area.
