A Rockford elementary school, standing for over 100 years, will soon be rubble.

Demolition of Walker Elementary School will start Tuesday. The school, built in 1911, closed for good after the 2015-2016 school year.

After demo, the land will be transferred from the Rockford School District to the Rockford Park District. Specific plans for the future of the site have not been announced.
