'Old Dormitory to be Destroyed' news clipping on the demolition of the Forest Grove Indian Training School's Boys' Dormitory

Description

A brief newspaper article noting that the former boys' dormitory of the Forest Grove Indian Training School would soon be demolished in order to make way for a more modern residence. The building had been used as the boys' dormitory at the Indian School from about 1880-1885, and then in the 1890s through early 1900s it was used as the first men's dormitory for Pacific University. The article notes that a local man named T. Wiggman wanted to construct a newer building in the same location. The newer building which replaced the Boys' Dormitory may be the apartments that currently stand at 2210 C St. in Forest Grove. This article was originally published on April 9, 1908 in the Washington County News. The image is derived from a microfilm copy of the newspaper.
