Description

Several school building and renovation projects were undertaken in Murray, Utah during the 1930s, with the aid of the Public Works Administration (PWA): a new  Arlington School, a two classroom addition at Bonnyview, finishing the basement into classrooms at Liberty, and an addition to the high school gymnasium. 

At Bonnyview School, a brick addition to the old building added two classroom, and restrooms were installed inside the building.  A separate building, formerly housing the first and second grades, was remodeled into a combined auditorium, playroom, and cafeteria.

Bonnyview School served mostly families of industrial workers living near the railroad and families living on farms in the relatively open lands to the west of Murray, and was relatively isolated from the center of town (in what is now an industrial zone).  As Murray became part of suburban Salt Lake City, the population changed and Bonnyview School was replaced by new schools built in expanding areas.

Bonnyview School has been demolished and the site remains empty.
