DOYLINE – The demolition of the old Union Elementary School in Doyline is well underway and on schedule Webster Parish Superintendent of Schools Dr. Dan Rawls said.

In December 2014, the school board approved bids to begin the process of demolishing the building because of vandalism and potential health concerns.

“The windows were broken out, there was black mold and asbestos in the building,” Rawls said, “and it was just a security concern. Taking it down just makes the most sense.”

Rawls said he and Buster Flowers, transportation supervisor, conducted one more walk through before deconstruction. The project began right after the first



  1. I am so sad to see it go!!! But my mom and I were just talking about the fact that there really isn’t a great place to walk. So some sort of park with a walking path would be great!!!
