Galt High School

An early 1930s photo of Galt High School shows a still undeveloped campus, as there was only so much money to build the basics when it was completed in 1927. This third version of the high school was built to replace the one that had burned to the ground in 1924. By this time, the Junior College of Aeronautical Engineering had come and gone, only lasting a year because of a lack of funds. The iconic domed roof gym would be built in 1943, and a few years later the Agriculture and Industrial Arts buildings would open. The final touches came in 1955 with the additions of the music building and the West Wing classrooms. What you see in the photo would meet the wrecking ball in 1973 because of earthquake safety concerns.
