Deer Creek School
Much to our chagrin, the school in Deer Creek, Illinois, where my family had enjoyed a pancake breakfast twenty years ago, is no more. In a bizarre act, reminiscent of the destruction of the City Palace of Berlin by the Communists in the 1950's, the sole remainder of the historic building is the front door. Honestly, I wish they had just gone ahead and torn the whole thing down if this is what they were going to do.
