Sedgwick High School

-A A +A
1920, Wilson and Wilson. 300 5th St.

The most striking elements of this two-and-one-half-story, red brick and white stucco school with terracotta trim are two bays flanking the Gothic-arched entry, which rise above the roofline as stepped parapets. Closed in 1966 and now surrounded by weeds, it remains a dramatic red and white apparition.
