Inscription. This building served as Goshen High School from 1904 until the spring of 1923. Construction was completed in 1904 with a budget of $50,000. By 1920 this building was considered too small and land was purchased from the Wurster Estate on Lincolnway East as a site for a new high school. The current Goshen High School is still located there.

The old high school then served as a Junior High School, Special Education classrooms, and School Administration offices before it was given to the City of Goshen in 1981 to be used as the Municipal Building Annex, supplementing the city offices across the street.
 
Erected by Goshen Parks & Recreation Department.
