Arizona Territorial Normal School
Architect: J.M.Creighton
Photographer: Phoenix View Co.
Arizona Territorial Normal School, 1890
The first building on the campus of the Arizona Territorial Normal School was a 60' x 70' red clay (from Tempe Butte) brick building with four rooms. Each room was 30' x 30'. There was a ten foot hallway through the center running north and south, and a ten foot porch surrounding the building. Other features included in the building were sixty-four French doors which provided cross ventilation in each room, sheet metal stoves for heating with mesquite wood, a well with a windmill, and outhouses. Horses were boarded in a pasture for fifty cents per month or five dollars for the year. Parking was the same fee. The Original Building, as it was referred to, was razed in 1906.
