A popular spot for "Twilight" fans to have their pictures taken in Forks, Wash. has been torn down.

The façade of Forks High School was demolished in June to make way for a new school.

According to the Peninsula Daily News, a campaign to raise $287,000 to save the 86-year-old façade came up short - raising only a few thousand dollars.

Fans of the teen vampire-romance books and movies frequently visited the site.

A terra cotta cornerstone and lintel reading "Quillayute High School" will be preserved in the new school.

Many thought there was a time capsule in the old cornerstone. All they found was a badly deteriorated copy of a 1925 weekly newspaper.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
