St. Matthew's School, R.I.P.

A photo by Jar With Most captures the close architectural connection between St. Matt's church and school.

Two shots by Grumkin on a recent visit to Flint show what's left of St. Matt's school.


  1. what a heart break. Shame, a tragic shame...

  2. They were 4 great years, 1965-1969. Are we better off today than back then? We are more affluent and better educated, but I just don't see that we are better today.


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
