Central School, Sumas, WA

Scanned with permission from an original postcard in a private collection

Central School was built in two parts.   I am not certain when the addition was built on the backside of the building.   According to some notes I found from the late Burl Beane's research, the school was operational from 1892 - 1933.  For part of the time it housed grade 1 through 12.  

Is that an outhouse behind the school?


  1. Was the tower ever "recycled"?

  2. Deborah - I have some circa 1900 photos that I think would interest you. How do I e-mail them to you? Cregan Marmont
