A popular spot for “Twilight” fans to have their pictures taken in Forks is gone.

The facade of Forks High School came down this month as the building is demolished to make way for a new school.

The Peninsula Daily News reports a campaign to raise $287,000 to save the 86-year-old facade raised only a few thousand dollars. It was one site in the Olympic Peninsula town visited by fans of the teen vampire-romance books and movies.

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.
