High School (demolished) Athletic Field – Sheridan WY

Description

The Civil Works Administration (CWA) “added a practice field newly leveled and landscaped” at the since-demolished high school in Sheridan, Wyoming in 1933/4.

The school, which was dedicated in 1926, served as the high school until 1987. It later became a junior high school and has since been demolished. The current Sheridan Junior High School occupies the site, which was on the south side of Lewis Street between Bellevue Ave. and Adair Ave.
