There’s certain imagery in David Lynch’s Twin Peaksthat will stay with you forever: the cherry pie and cups of good hot black coffee, the mysterious owl cave insignia, the cherry stem Audrey ties with her tongue, and the zigzag decorations on the walls of Twin Peaks High School.
Sadly, though, the latter are going to be no more as of next month. The high school officially closed its doors yesterday (June 14) and is due to be demolished July 5.
In videos taken by fans celebrating the iconic location before it’s lost, the building looks relatively unchanged, with the same red designs on the walls as seen in the show. Even seeing it empty brings back memories of Audrey smoking in her locker (guess Audrey has all the iconic moments) and that boy that mysteriously dances out of frame.
There’s also a touching Norma and Ed tribute that remains in the bathrooms.
See images from the soon-to-be-demolished building below. RIP Twin Peaks High.
Today is the last day of #TwinPeaks High School. It’s doors will shut soon and demolition begins July 5th. Here are a few pictures taken during its final hours by @grrlskout. Thank you for sharing, this high school will live on forever in our memories. So will Norma and Ed. pic.twitter.com/eY4UqUmUrr
The location for Twin Peaks high school closes today. Demolition begins soon. So grateful to have spent time here over the years — and over the moon that I got to access some out-of-reach places thanks to the generous @grrlskout. Rest In Peace, red lockers. See you in my dreams. pic.twitter.com/D9clijGpg0
