W.C. Klitzing Memorial Heritage Park
Klitzing Park, locally known as "the train" park was the site of the "old" school, the original wing being built in 1904 as a High School. A new wing was added in 1928, making it a combination Grade/High School. It became the Grade School exclusively when the "new" High School opened for the 1953/1954 school year. The last year the "old" school was used was for the 1975/1976 school year. It was demolished several years later and the ground was made into a park. Some of the play equipment is still being used--notice the monkey bars and the merry-go-round! The basketball court is still there, plus the tennis court, which is now used by skate-boarders.
