NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Across the river, it was a night filled with nostalgia. Students past and present visited Crestwood Elementary school one last time.
A few weeks ago, the school put out a flier saying the original building built back in 1964 is to be torn down to make room for a new state-of-the-art building.
Former Crestwood cougar Doris Price visited the school Thursday night, and was sad to see to see this piece of the neighborhood go.
"I love this school. I've always loved this school. I lived right around the corner, and it's just disheartening that they would tear it down," said Price.
Former staff, students and parents toured the school Thursday night to say their goodbyes. School officials plan to tear the building down in June.
