History

Construction started in 1923, and the building was dedicated Friday, October 3, 1924. The school was dedicated to the 248 men who died in World War One. Mr. W.E. Englund was superintendent of the school district. Enrollment for the first year of school was 460 high school students. According to the local newspapers, it cost $1,000,000 and boasted an indoor pool. The Industrial Arts Building was constructed in 1929. In 1939 the American football field was added behind the high school, where legions of visitors to the city still flock to see the stadium and nap in the cool, dewy grass on the field. Another venerable athletic facility is the famed indoor basketball court, where hundreds of Elyites amass in the throes of winter to support their beloved Timberwolves. Even during the off season, the sound of basketball can be heard echoing throughout the silent summer hallways, as visitors make use of the facility for their famed "barefoot basketball" contests. It is still being used for secondary education (grades 7-12). The high school building is one of four buildings on the school campus. The rest of the campus consists of the Ely Ice Arena, Washington Elementary, and the Band and Industrial Arts Building. ["Ely, Since 1888", The Ely Echo, Ely, Minnesota, 1988. ]
