Brief Historical Account

The building now known as Park Avenue apartments was built in 1904, as South Canon High School. On November 14th, 1914 there was a fire, and much of the building burned down. It was rebuilt in 1915. After the rebuilding of the school it remained South Canon High School until 1920 at which time it was renamed Wilson Junior High School. It remained Wilson Junior High School until 1961. The building sat vacant for several years until it was refurbished into apartments in the 1970's.
