Yankton High School was the first high school in Dakota Territory back around 1875.
I'm not positive when these photos were taken, since none of them have dates, so I've done my best to put them in chronological order.
|This is obviously the earliest photo, since the addition hasn't been built yet.|
|These two are probably from around the same time, just different angles|
|This is what the school looks like today (since roughly 1996).|
Incidentally, although he did not attend until a little over a decade later (he wasn't born until 1940), Tom Brokaw also graduated from Yankton High School and went on to receive a Bachelor's Degree from the University of South Dakota. (Woo hoo! I found someone famous from Yankton!)
Wow ... this is my 200th post!
