FORKS, Wash. -- 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 being 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 façade 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.

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