'Twilight' movie landmark destroyed in Forks

FORKS, Wash.

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.
