MVTHS Digital Walkthrough


Thank you for your interest in the history of the old MVTHS campus. This digital walkthrough is what you would have seen had you walked through the old campus one last time just days before demolition began. You will be able to choose a starting point around the campus and freely choose where you want to go using the arrows on the interface. This walkthrough contains 800+ photos of the demolished old MVTHS campus. Only buildings A through F (the demolished buildings) have been included in this version out of respect for the still-standing G and H buildings.

The file is over 2.2 Gb, so the download time may take a long time depending on your internet speed. Please make sure you have enough storage on your computer (at least 2.5 Gb of free space) before downloading.

This walkthrough was created in Microsoft PowerPoint, so you will need to be on a computer with this program installed to view this. If you do not have PowerPoint installed on your computer, you can use the PDF version of this walkthrough, which should function the same, although the pictures are lower in quality. Also, I would not advise attempting to download and view this on a mobile device. The download file is very large and this was not designed for mobile use.

A word of caution: this is not how the school looked when students and staff roamed these halls. It sat vacant for a year and a half before these photos were taken on January 30th & 31st of 2018. The walls are peeling, there are no desks, the gym floor has been cut up, and it will be sad to see. This is exactly what a person would have seen had they walked around campus just before demolition began.

If you are interested in the history of the administration/faculty of MVTHS or viewing historic photos of the old campus, feel free to view the spreadsheet I published in the spring of 2017. The spreadsheet contains photos of every administrator from 1905-2017, and also contains various photos of the campus pulled from yearbooks of the past. You can view this spreadsheet at this link.

I would like to thank Gina Williamson, Technology Coordinator, for approving this project and supporting me throughout the process. I would also like to thank Brian Rightnowar, Facilities Manager, for allowing me to walk through the old campus and take these photos. Additionally, I’d like to thank Rachel Wright for helping me name this project.

I hope you enjoy this walk back in time.

Best Regards,

Blake McPherson
