That's where the college now stands. The columned building was the theater. Many people were sorry to see it go. Behind the theater was the gymnasium, and next to that was the JC Building.

I also note the viaduct in the upper right corner. I too hate the theater was torn down. Glad they didn't get the admin building or the gym though.

We're looking east, the viaduct is Hillsboro, the two-storey building in the center is still standing, but everything in front of it is parkinglot now...?

Great photo...Do you know when it was taken?. I would enjoy seeing more of these photos. It would be great if others would post photos of El Dorado, not just historical photos but contemporary photos as well.

I can't tell you the date, but the school buildings and the neighborhood looks just as they did my last year to attend the highschool,which was 1963. How many remember that directly across Summit Street in front of the school auditorium was a two story apartment house reserved for the married students. On the corner was the infamous "Wildcat" cafe, where we all got quick burgers and cokes at lunch. Thanks for the great photo

Shame the mansions located to the southeast and southwest which would be where the library is were torn down. I know expansion is good but why not incorporate history like that into the school.

This is where Jimmy Hayes went to High School. I think he graduated in 1951 or 1952. If anyone remembers please email me at;
