Note:
The 3-story, classically detailed brick school was designed by Gullett in 1924 and built in 1925. The T-shaped structure with auditorium is representative of the many substantial high schools built during the 1920s era of widespread school consolidation and construction. The 1924 blueprints survived at the time of the preparation of the National Register nomination in 1998. Erected as a high school, the building later served as a junior high and an elementary school.
