Nilwood School- Nilwood, Illinois

After I left the farm house I kept traveling until I entered the small town of Nilwood, Illinois. This town is right along Route 66 and has most defiantly seen better days. I tried to do some research on the school but found nothing. All I know is that it was built in 1927 and as time went on, people had less kids and the hey days of Route 66 passed Nilwood by and left the school to stand and deteriorate.

Without further ado, welcome to Nilwood, population 273.
