Center Township School Destroyed by Fire in 1942

It was 69 years ago today that the old Center Township School burned to the ground. The fire started in the afternoon and the Fire Department thought they had it completely extinguished, but it flared in the night, burning the structure to the ground.

The school was never rebuilt and the Center Township students were brought into Knox. Even though they then became Redskins, in their hearts, they always were the Center Township Bluestreaks.
