Old High School

Wallace, Idaho 83873, United States

Created By: GarvisTech


Built in 1892, the original building included the iconic Moorish tower. The janitor slept in the building heated by wood powered steam. The building had indoor water but no electric lights. In 1901 the annex was added to the rear of the building. By December of 1908, another annex was added to front of the the building. The growth of the building across such a short time is indicative of the population growth that was occurring in Wallace during that time. The entire building was demolished in 1930 and was replaced by a grade school/junior high. Many local residents remember attending the newer building that replaced this building.
