You are standing at the second story entrance to what once was a three story primary school. The land was purchased, a bond was passed and construction began in 1913. It opened May 29, 1914 to graduate 3 seniors: Francis Lyons, Gertrude Rothermel and T. Edward Peacock.

The building became inadequate almost immediately despite $18,000 being spent on major alterations, and another school was built in 1920 in Deception Gulch.

Following the decline in copper prices in 1932, the school board voted to close the school. In 1944 the building was sold to J.N. Stuart and D.K. Murphy for $606.00 and was demolished in 1945.

The retaining walls for the first floor, and the steps to the playground were left intact. The steps to the third floor still lie across the middle retaining wall. This property was leased in 1964 and later sold to Joan Evans, a former teacher at Mingus Union High School.
