Northwest Junior High
The Public Works Administration funded the construction of Northwest Junior High School, completed in 1935. Windows and doors were recently replaced, but the school retains its original elements.
Muhlenberg Greene Architects (at the time of construction was called Muhlenberg, Yerkes, and Muhlenberg), was one of the six Architectural Firms coordinating with the School District of Reading, Pennsylvania to create the new Junior High School Building. The photographs and a blueprints of the floor plan are from the Muhlenberg Greene Architects archives.
