May School burned down late at night on December 28, 1979.  As can be seen in the photo, the building was completely destroyed.
The Livermore Heritage Guild had been working to restore the school since 1974, having put many hundreds of hours of work into the project.
It is believed to have been arson.
At the time the Guild was planning to install a fence and board up the windows to prevent vandalism.

This photo was reportedly taken the day before the fire.
