5th & Main Housing, LP, owner. Steve Foutch, Gastinger Walker Harden Architects. The High School building was constructed in 1917, reflecting the 20th century Collegiate Gothic motif. The 1927 junior high was constructed north of the high school, also of brick to compliment the 1917 school. The rehabilitation caps over ten years of effort by preservationists in Ottawa.
