Whitewater Historical Society’s Flashback Friday for September 18, 2020

This photo shows a Whitewater High School assembly from 1909. It is somewhat rare to have such quality interior photos that also show the students, since most class photos were taken outside and oftentimes only the exterior of school buildings were photographed. Built in the early 1880s, it served as the high school until it burned in 1927 and wa​s replaced with City High. It was affectionately known as “Big Brick.”

Join us next week for more from the Whitewater Historical Society collections!

Flashback Friday photos are posted to the Facebook account for the Whitewater Historical Society. These images and captions will be posted to the Whitewater Banner the following Saturday morning for members of our audience who do not use social media.

The Whitewater Historical Society collects, preserves, and interprets the history of Whitewater and the surrounding area. Be sure to join us next week for more from the Society’s collections. Please “like” us on Facebook and check out our website at www.whitewaterhistoricalsociety.org!​
