Take a walking tour of QPS#172’s Baldwin School with PBS Illinois Stories’ Mark McDonald! Klingner & Associates’ President/CEO, Michael Klingner, shows Mark around the facility prior to demolition.
The Quincy Public School system has been a model for other schools across the US for years and now, it’s time to upgrade. Multiple buildings are being demolished to make way for facilities to be built one rate next few years & one of them is Baldwin School, formerly known as Senior High 1. Before the wrecking ball started it’s work, PBS Illinois Stories took one final tour of this building with a particularly interesting tie to the Cold War of the 50’s & 60’s.
Watch here or tonight on Springfield, IL local PBS stations at 6:30pm!
