Heavy equipment continued to make rubble of the former Libbey High School on Tuesday.

Preservationists and Libbey graduates tried for months to save the shuttered school, even leading a successful effort to place the school on the National Register of Historic Places, but their fight came to an end Monday when the career center's eastern wall fell. Demolition officially began in August with asbestos abatement, though some supporters still held out hope some of the building could be saved. Major work had been planned for December, but delays in cutting of utilities and acquiring permits pushed back the project.
