The Union School Early in 1865 the fine Union school building on east Main Street was commenced, and pushed toward completion through that and the following year; but it was not until 186768 that it was entirely finished, its total cost being about $25,000. It is a brick structure, 60x74, three stories in height, and contains eleven rooms. In 1878 the west side building was erected, likewise made of brick, containing eight rooms, at a cost of some $10,000. It is pleasantly located, and is used at present as the High-school building.
