Struggle Begins Over High School Site in 1915


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 6/24/1915.

Lively Fight for the Location of High School

A lively fight for the location of the high school is being waged this week, the main contenders in the race being the towns of Arnoldsburg, Grantsville and Mt. Zion.  Each of the places are in the fight to secure the building and valuable inducements have been and will be offered.  In a letter to the Grantsville News last week J.W. Pell, of this place, offered a site of four acres on his farm across the river from here.  There are other sites which will be publicly offered at or near Grantsville at a later time, it is reported.  It is said that both Arnoldsburg and Mt. Zion are ready to offer free sites and make other inducements.  It promises to be a lovely scrap from start to finish.
