 By 1908, Vicksburg’s old school building on Maple Street was bursting at the seams, and it was decided to look for a site for a newer and larger building. 

A site on Kalamazoo Avenue was chosen and village residents voted to approve the construction of a new school, not to exceed $25,000 in cost. Construction was finished in 1909. This building served as an elementary, junior high and high school until 1952 when a separate building was built for use as a high school on Highway street. Vicksburg Community Schools currently uses the structure as an administration building.
