They don't make high schools like this any more

This old postcard features the high school (which no longer exists) in Warren, Pennsylvania. It's part of a cache of cards belonging to the Berger family of Foltz, Pennsylvania. I rounded up links to those postcards in two summers ago.

I finally found some information about this building thanks to the Warren Library Association. It was built between 1896 and 1897 and was razed in 1960 or 1961.

It was located on the corner of Second Avenue and Market Street, which then became the site of the Market Street Elementary School after 1961. That elementary school, in turn, appears to have closed in 2006.

Warren High's nickname, by the way, is the Dragons, which is pretty dang cool.

  1. That looks like it was a great building. Sad that it's gone.
