Essex High School

Sticking with the Essex County theme again today, we head back to Essex…

According to Wikipedia, Essex District High School “… was founded in 1885 and is the oldest operating publicly funded high school in Ontario”

The original building burned down in February 1921, and Pennigton and Boyde were hired to design a replacement. The replacement building seen above opened with classes in September 1922.

Much expanded, the original section is still standing in the middle of the building. In my notes I show an addition designed by J.C. Pennington in 1948, although I suspect that it is hardly the only one. 🙂
