DEMOLITION OF THE OLD BALFOUR SCHOOL WAS EXPECTED TO BE COMPLETED LAST WEEK

TO MAKE WAY FOR THE NEW EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT SERVICES HEADQUARTERS   

Those in Balfour and who drove along U.S. 25 in that area this past weekend saw a part of Henderson County’s education history being torn down.

The old Balfour School, that dates back to 1927, was torn down to make room for Henderson County’s new Emergency Services building.

Demolition should be complete sometime this week on the old structure.

County school board member Rick Wood, who is a member of the local Education History Initiative, said former principals, teachers, students and parents associated with the old school are in the process of coming up with a way to memorialize it on the site.

The new building will be some 57,000 square feet in size and will cost county taxpayers just over $13 million.

That new structure will house county Emergency Management, EMS, and the Rescue Squad and should be complete by August of 2018.
