Long Description:
For most of the 119 years between 1873 and 1992, a majority of Sioux Falls children attended one of three public schools erected on this site. The first was an unnamed small wood-frame elementary school and was replaced 5 years later by Central School which was a large two story brick structure. A new high school building was opened in 1908 and it was named Washington High School. In 1922 a second WHS unit opened south of Central. After "old central" was razed in 1934 a center unit was built to combine the three WHS units. The building was completed as it now stands in 1935. In 1986 this structure, which was built of locally quarried Sioux Quartzite, was listed on the NRHP. The original WHS closed in 1992 when a new WHS opened. In 1999 the building reopened as the Washington Pavilion.
