Rice, Architect, of Clinton.A large, two and one-half story building, it has a stone foundation and exterior walls of brick with stone sills, string courses, arches and trim. The major exterior changes of the building include; installation of new and smaller windows with infill panels above the window head; boarding up the window openings above the roof cornice line; and, the addition of a steel fire escape on the north wall. An installation of a sprinkler system in 1959 allowed the interior of the building to remain much as originally built, including open stair-wells and wood wainscot.The building is a massive structure of Romanesque Style design. It was built and served as the Clinton High School until 1921.
