While out on an urban exploring adventure around central & eastern Pennsylvania, we happened upon this old abandoned school in Reinerton, PA. The school had a few spots that enabled entry, the one we entered from was a huge, gaping hole on the side of the school. There were no "No Trespassing" signs or anything, but it was about 35 degrees out this day so please excuse us if parts of the video seem hurried. This school is completely stable, all of the floors & walls are made up of concrete so there is nothing to rot away beneath your feet.

Potter Township High School was built in 1931 & actually has a "claim to fame." Les Brown was a student at the school & was a bandleader. Les later went on to form a big band called Les Brown & his Band of Renown which had some chart topping singles like "Sentimental Journey" which you hear in this video. This song paved the way for artist Dorris Day & launched her career into the history books.

We are already planning on our return to this school to take longer video & explore the entire school, until then...
