Terray Harmon, Sharon Hull and Bonita Ross all contributed to this week’s report.
Last week’s History Mystery, above, is from the digital archive of The Dalles Chronicle. It is taken from a print, and identified as The Dalles High School, 1915.
Bonita Ross said the old high school cost $100,000 to build. “It was made of brick and they said it would never burn,” she said. But it did, in 1940, according to a TDHS Alumni website. “Both my parents went to school in that High School,” Ross said. “I was on the stage in that school in 1939.”
The current high school was built at the same location.
