This month we spent much of our time saving many of the original Hillsboro High School built in 1929. This was such a wonderful building that we really hated to see go. Fortunately, we were able to save many wonderful items from the landfill; such as the wire gym locker units, beautiful deep porcelain sinks, Art Deco drinking fountains, Douglas fir bookshelves, classroom doors, the wood theatre seats from the school auditorium and the amazing steel light fixtures that were in there too. We also have pull-down school maps and these cast concrete flowers from the exterior of the building.
