Construction Workers Shocked After What They Found During School Renovations

Nowadays when you walk into a classroom, you’re likely to see an interactive whiteboard instead of a chalkboard. Contractors at Emerson High School in Oklahoma City were working on upgrading the school when they made a fascinating and (borderline creepy) discovery.

The contractors were removing chalkboards from the classrooms when they stumbled on the century old find, according to Metaspoon. Chalkboards that still had chalk inscribed lessons and drawings on them from about 100 years ago were behind the existing ones. Apparently, when the school installed new chalkboards in 1917, they just fit them over the old ones without bothering to erase anything.

What’s creepy about it is that the dated images and penmanship still look flawless and brightly colored… weird.

“It was so eerie because the colors were so vibrant it looked like it was drawn the same day,” English teacher Cinthea Comer told The Oklahoman, according to Metaspoon. “To know that it was drawn 100 years ago… it’s like you’re going into a looking glass into the past.”

Metaspoon reports that the chalkboard were found in four different rooms and including things like a multiplication wheel, music lessons and more.
Oklahoma State plans to preserve the chalkboards.
