Oct 22, 2022 – On Sept 30th, the City of Burlington was supposed to buy Lord Elgin/Robert Bateman’s building and land. However, there has been no news from the City. The purchase price is rumoured to be around $50 million, and there is some hostility from the community and the press to this price. The sale will likely be announced after the municipal elections on Oct 24th. Over the summer, the school board removed everything belonging to them and cleaned up things. The school now sits empty, waiting for its next owners. The current plan is for Brock University to take over the second floor of the school for its adult education program, moving its operations from Hamilton. While it is sad to see the school end as a high school, at least the building will continue to stand and serve as a reminder that you were once here. This will be the first of several posts showing the current condition of the school from the outside. I will explain what you see since a lot has changed from the LEHS days.
