Because of how much was left behind and the elaborate, historic architecture, Libbey High School ranks highly among my favorite exploring destinations. As beautiful as it was, though, it never appears to have been popular among the other Toledo Public Schools, and had been haunted by threats of closure since the 1980’s.
It was named after the founder of Libbey Glass and the Toledo Art Museum, Edward Drummond Libbey. Despite an unpopular reputation compared to the other schools in the community and listed among potential closures over the course of the past 30 years, the school lasted until 2010.
After two years of scrapping, Libbey was demolished in 2012.
