WHS History

History of Westmoreland High School

Researched and written by Haley Cook and Jesica Eppstein

as part of their ACT Prep Class in March, 2015.

Westmoreland High School did not exist prior to 1910. Around the Westmoreland community multiple one room school houses were scattered every few miles. Finally, a central school building was constructed in Westmoreland itself. This building served as a two year high school after its time as an elementary school. Soon enrollment at this school increased and a new school was needed. Westmoreland contributed $10,000 to add on a new section for the high school that included an auditorium and two wings out to the gym. When this school was reopened in 1929, grades 1-12 were taught there and it even hosted the East Sumner Fair in the 1930’s-1940’s. It was one of the largest fairs of the time. Tragedy struck in December of 1955 when fire broke out in the school; the fire started in the cafeteria and spread fast throughout the building. The only section that was left was the Agricultural Annex, which was separated from the main building. While classes were held around town in places like churches, a new high school and separate elementary school were being built. In 1955, the new high school building was completed and served grades 6-12. In 1988 a new additional wing was built onto the school and served strictly as the high school. Just as Westmoreland population increased over the decades so did the school’s enrollment. In 2004, a new high school building was built. This structure serves as our current day high school and is located at 4300 Hawkins Drive.
