Prescott Unified School District celebrated on Tuesday, May 1, the grand opening of its new district offices in the historic Washington Traditional School on E. Gurley Street. For two hours, members of the community toured the renovated, red brick schoolhouse that dates back to the earliest days of the territorial capital. Some of the guests were retired teachers and current educators and parents; others just interested community members eager to see the restoration of the historic property. From the comments, all were impressed with the nearly $500,000 investment. (Nanci Hutson/Courier)
