First Madera high school

With their new high school complete, Maderans set out to beautify the grounds by planting trees and shrubbery. This building lasted for just 13 years. On August 14, 1917, it caught fire and burned to the ground. The school board took the $7,000 insurance money and began construction again. (Madera Images-Bill Coate)
