A Jan. 25, 1918, item in this week’s Times Past reports that Bakersfield residents gathered to go coasting (sledding) on the “schoolhouse hill.” The sledding site was the former location of this stately Bakersfield school building, which is described in an unidentified newspaper clipping as “the pride of the community ... in the early 1900s.” The building, which housed the first high school classes to be held in Bakersfield in 1914, burned just after the new year began in 1915. According to Times publisher Ruby Robins’ history of the school published in the Aug. 31, 1983, edition of the Times, a few months after the wooden building burned, a concrete schoolhouse was constructed. That building, which opened in 1915, was destroyed by a tornado in June 1928 and was replaced by the school that was eventually demolished before the construction last year of Bakersfield’s current school building.
