Yamhill Carlton High School
The Public Works Administration awarded $27,415 to Yamhill County in 1935 for construction of Yamhill High School, later renamed Yamhill Carlton High School with consolidation of the Yamhill and Carlton school districts. County voters approved a $51,335 bond for the remaining cost of the project.
The Oregonian, a Portland daily newspaper, announced that the “start order” would provide work for ninety workers “taken from relief rolls in Yamhill County.” The Portland architectural firm of Barrett & Logan designed the school and Portland contractors Lonner, DeBruin and DeBruin oversaw its construction.
