A Springfield preservationist is making one last attempt to save the historic Enos School.
The nearly 100-year-old building is slated for demolition as soon as work is complete on a new replacement building right next to the existing school. But Jerry Jacobson with Save Old Springfield wants the new school board to overrule that demolition decision made by the prior board.
Jacobson says the historic building can be saved and converted to residential use, which would generate property taxes for the school district. Jacobson will formally make his request to the school board Monday night.
