A great deal of this information is taken from the National Register of Historic Sites, Reference #90000881 and from the tour notes of Richard de Aguero (Class of 1961), Former MHS Activities Director

Did you know that this is actually the third physical location for MHS?

Here's a brief timeline...

1902: Established as a two-story wooden structure, for 15 students, on NE First Avenue.

1903: MHS opens with an enrollment of 264 (the pattern for overcrowding was set early!)

1911: A three-story masonry structure replaces the wood building.

1915: The high school moves to 275 NW Second Avenue.

1927: Groundbreaking for the current location takes place on March 18, 1927.

1928: Students enter the new building on Valentines Day, February 14th.

1990: MHS is added to the National Register of Historic Sites.
