FORKS, WASH. (AP) - The end is near for the brick facade of the oldest Forks high school in Washington state, described in the “Twilight” novels as the place where heroine Bella Swan meets vampire love Edward Cullen.

Often photographed by “Twilight” fans, the main doorway from the 1920’s-era building carries the words “Quillayute Valley High School.” It was left standing last summer when the rest of the structure was demolished.

The Peninsula Daily News reports the school district had hoped to leave the facade as a stand-alone entrance to the new school campus.

But saving the facade would cost $271,000 and the school board can’t afford it.
