Notes:
A little history
The Union School was completed in 1868 on the block of Second and Dunbar Street.

However, the town continued to grow. The board determined the school was not large enough. So in 1889 the Union School was demolished making way for the new School.

Alpena Central High School was completed in 1891. It contained Fourth to Sixth grade on the first floor and High School classes were on the second floor.

A Study Hall, a stage, more classrooms, a library, gymnasium, and an office for the school nurse was added in the 1920’s. The community was very proud of their school.

The community was devastated when the school burned down on April 14, 1940.

Classes were then held in local buildings like the Memorial Hall, the Boys Club, the Civic League and the American Legion. 10 days after the school burned the children were attending their classes again.

This picture was taken one year before the school burned.
