Washington School in the 1950’s – from the Eastman Archive at UC Davis

New Schools for Susanville
February 22, 1949

Detailed plans for the next two buildings in the elementary school construction program were inspected and approved at a meeting of the Susanville elementary school board Wednesday night.

The complete plans were presented Architect Robert E. Kaestner of Visalia.

Clyde Merton, assistant superintendent of elementary schools in charge of the building program, said it is hoped that advertising for bids will begin in about two weeks. The plans have been submitted to the state division of architecture for approval.

It is hoped that work will begin on the two buildings by April 1, Merton said.

Both new buildings as the new Lincoln unit will have radiant heating through the floor. They will be one story with sloping shed type roofs with large window spaces of modern design.

The superintendent of school’s office will probably be in the building on the Washington site.
