Exclusive Tour of Stadium High School
Originally built to be a luxury hotel in the 1800s, the architecturally magnificent building now known as Stadium High School was abandoned during the financial crash of the late 1850’s and later gutted by fire. And regardless of whether you’ve ever walked those hallowed halls, you might be wondering what is in the historic building’s sub-basement, tunnels, four-story attic, boiler room, and historical theater. The Nov. 16 tour is presented by Pretty Gritty Tours and will run from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Purchase tickets online.
