Be sure to view all our web pages and "album" pages. Wasn't it just yesterday that we climbed up those "down" staircases at North High? School spirit was in full swing! As an interesting sidelight, I find it newsworthy but a little disappointing that the New NHS is not the same school since we attended!
We were fortunate to participate in or to be an enthusiastic spectator at the many athletic games. Sports developed discipline and sportsmanship, and those sports offered at NHS were: football, cross country, swimming, basketball, hockey, gymnastics, wrestling, skiing, track, tennis, golf, baseball, badminton, and volleyball. Remember cheering at the games and those casual days on Fridays?
After the games, having worked up an appetite, we frequented some of our favorite hang outs.
In the '60s, there were 11 Minneapolis public high schools: Central, Edison, Henry, Marshall, North, Roosevelt, South, Southwest, Vocational, Washburn, and West, but today, only seven remain. Central and West were closed in 1982 and have been torn down; Marshall was also closed in 1982 and Vocational in 1976, but both are currently used for other purposes. South was demolished and rebuilt nearby, opening in 1970. The old North High was demolished. (I'm looking for photos of our school beening demolished and the tear down) and rebuilt the winter of 1973-74 to the best of my knowledge.
The '50s and '60s were great years and I am glad to have grown up during that time. I hope you feel the same. Enjoy our site from the Class of '66 and please revisit often, as additional photos and pages are frequently added! Bookmark it for future reference. If you have questions on navigating this site please contact the webmaster. Have fun and thanks for stopping by today!
