This is the 1911 Bluffton High School building. This photograph was taken before the current "old section of the high school" was even in the dream stage.

Where was it? Stand at the St. John's United Church of Christ corner of College Avenue and Jackson Street and gaze toward the current high school.

Somewhere in the mist, you'll see it.
