Wareham's venerable Minot Forest Elementary School is no more.  An alert Wareham police officer caught a photo as the cupola fell during demolition work at the site today.

The nearly fifty year old building was closed last year and the students moved to Decas Elementary after the school committee determined the school's structural problems and out-of-date systems were beyond economical repair. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
