The Old Main: What Happens Next?
Roseburg School Board issued the Heritage building back in 2022 to shut down after a community member brought information regarding the terrible state the building was in at that time. While this may have helped teachers and students from using the building in its poor state, it produces time of deterioration and infestation among the building itself and other buildings on campus such as Main, Commons, Arts, etc. The Heritage building that was once a stable of Roseburg High, has now turned into a abandoned piece of history left to rot. Having this building in the poor state that it is in will only create more problems for the community and Roseburg High until it completely collapses.
