On June 12, 2013, the Abington School Board voted to demolish the Glenside-Weldon Elementary School. The building dated back to as early as 1906, with 11 additions made over the years.
The smokestack was demolished on September 29, 2014. It was captured on video:
A former student of the school, Scott Rittler, participated in a tour of the school that was offered prior to the demolition. Below is a photo album created by Rittler.
