According to The WPA in West St. Paul:
The Works Progress Administration (WPA) “constructed Sibley Junior High School at the corner of Bernard and Bidwell. It was the second of three schools named for Henry Sibley that would serve West St. Paul.
The WPA work at Sibley happened between 1936 and 1941 (there are some conflicting dates). A decade later the building was expanded to the south and became the high school. In 1960, Frances Grass Junior High School was added to the school complex. In the late 1990s it was all torn down, except the gym and swimming pool, and replaced by Heritage Middle School.
Today there’s nothing left of the original WPA building.”
