Congrats Class of 1931

This May 1931 Hillsboro High Times has more ads than copy. You can soon read the entire issue, plus the Feb-March 1931 issue at the Hillsboro Community Library, housed in the former high school. Both are a generous gift to the Hillsboro Historical Society from Sierra County resident, Celisse Behnen.
Hillsboro High Times, May 1931.
The Hillsboro High School was built in 1922 by the architectural firm Trost & Trost of El Paso. The architect's work not only graces Hillsboro's skyline, but that of El Paso, Tucson, and Albuquerque. Several New Mexico State University building were designed by Trost & Trost. The Hillsboro High School building is today the center of community activities, and the only public building left in the former Sierra County seat. --Craig Springer
