These buildings look to me like they could be on a military installation....but I would doubt you would be flying around on one. Could it be one that closed and the buildings are being used for tourist purposes or office spaces now? Just a thought.

Hadn't noticed the Basketball court in left corner, so I guess the larger building is a school, and smaller is an annex building or newer admin building maybe.

Sam, I have a great thought.....if a photo doesn't have a clue of some kind already.....i.e. sign, church, gas station, etc., how about you giving us the state at least right up front.....it is pretty hard to pin down the where of a place let alone the what of a place in a week. Lot of folks out there don't have that kind of time....maybe a few more fans out there would participate. What do you think? Anyone reading this agree?

Linda - I hope you are wrong about being stumped. Wouldnt that be wild? 2 weeks in a row?

My guess is that this is somewhere in/near Cassville, WI. Maybe a demolished school?

Alright everyone.

This photo is located on Denniston St. in Cassville, WI. Here's a link to the Google Street View:

It appears that the main building has been torn down and a new building stands in it's place. However, the other building is still there.

Anyone have any helpful info to what the original building actually was?

Not a whole lot to get on this one. It is the Cassville Elementry School....and listed with the Wisconsin Historical Preservation Society Inventory. Nothing to tell that I find so far. Funds ran out to save lots of structures, so that could explain why this was replaced. The driveway is named School St.

The link for the Architecture and History Inventory card for this is:
