HistoryEdit

The school was constructed from 1858 to 1957 to replace the previous one and serve the city's growing population. During the 1870s, with the population still growing, major additions built. During various times in the school's history, it taught all grades ranging from kindergarten through all four years of high school.[3] The building ceased being used as a school in 1981. It has since been converted into a museum.
