Washington Junior High School

Clinton, Iowa 52732, United States

Created By: Matt Parbs


Washington Junior High School (Washington Middle School), 751 2nd Avenue South; 1933-1935; Karl Keffer & Earl E. Jones, Architects, of Des Moines with A. H. Morrell, Associate Architect; Ringland-Johnson Company, Contractor.A large, two-story school, the building exterior is of brick with stone trim and accent panels. Additions to the rear (south) were done in 1952 and in 1972. For Iowa, the building is an excellent example of the so-called "Modernistic" or Art Deco Style. The entry treatment is of special interest with its play in relief of geometric designs.
