|It was after midnight February 21, 1942 that Calhoun County High School burned in the
early morning hours. Fire broke out in the basement and quickly
spread throughout the structure.|
Grantsville did not have a fire department, only a hose cart used to clean the
streets. The entire structure was gutted, but the walls remained structurally sound
and were used to rebuild the facility.
These photos have been little seen, with a number of other stories and photos on the Hur Herald.
