The Tremont School Challenge

There is a $10,000 Challenge going on to help preserve the old TREMONT School.

Built in 1913 as Selma's first high school, the structure has been used
 as storage for the past few decades, and since its acquisition
 windows have been replaced along with other repairs. But before
 it can be used again, this historic gem needs a lot more help.
 Over $80,000 has already been invested, but a matching $10,000 grant
 will mean at least an additional $20,000 toward restoration. 

Plans for the former school will be discussed by architect Dick Hudgens
 at tonight's annual meeting of the SDCHPS. The 6 p.m. meeting
 at St. Paul's Episcopal Church is open to all who are interested.

It looks remarkably like my old elementary school which, alas, was torn down in the mid-1970s.

Important to preserve this building, just like the palace I wrote about last week. Thanks for sharing and telling about its history.
