A photograph from June 1924 shows the aftermath of a fire that destroyed the main building at Galt High School. The fire started in the basement furnace room and was believed to be started intentionally. High school employee Malcolm Ireland found the fire just after midnight and called for help. By the time the fire apparatus arrived, all firemen could do was save the other structures. Galt Constable Frank Sutton called Sacramento County Sherriff’s Deputies, who determined it was arson but could find no suspect. Workers demolished the remaining shell and installed temporary buildings for the next school year. The iconic Spanish style main school building was completed for the 1927-1928 school year.
