The band hall at Elmhurst High School in Fort Wayne, Indiana. A gate blocks access to one end of the hall.

 


Elmhurst Band Hall

This is the Band Hall at Elmhurst High School in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I photographed it during a final tour of the school given to alumni in 2017. The gate was closed to keep visitors on the tour route.

The hall got its name because all of the marching band members had their lockers in this hall, which is also where the entrance to the band room is located.

Normally, students' lockers were grouped according to what grade they were in. All the freshmen had their lockers in one hall, the sophomores in another, etc. Band members' lockers were not part of this arrangement; they always had their lockers in the Band Hall.

I graduated from Elmhurst in 1994, and was an Alto Saxophone player in the marching band and the concert band all four years that I was a student there.

The school, which opened in 1929, was closed by Fort Wayne Community Schools in 2010. In 2017, they sold the building and land to Hanson Aggregates, which owns the huge limestone quarry next to the school. They plan to demolish the school soon.

Purchase Prints
by Christopher Crawford

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
