Before High School was Mandatory...
This advertisement encouraging parents to send their children to the Cuba City High School was in the August 31, 1917 issue of the Cuba City News Herald. The original part of this brick building was built in 1905 and the addition was added in 1915. For those who don't remember the old school, it was located south of the "Pit."
