The Kingstonian

1925 Kingston High School Yearbook


We entered the halls of the Rutter Avenue High School and the Main Street High School in the fall of nineteen twenty-one, two groups of young people, filled with an eager desire to complete the prescribed high school course. In September nineteen hundred twenty four, as a result of the consolidation of the Boroughs of Kingston and Dorranceton, we joined forces realizing that "a house divided against itself cannot stand," and forthwith established our headquarters in the Rutter Avenue Building.
