North High School
1437 N. Rochester

It was built in 1929 by local architect Glen Thomas. Designed in the Art Deco architectural style, the building was constructed with buff colored brick trimmed in polychrome terra cotta. The ornaments in the terra cotta employ the Thomas-coined "Prairie American" motif and represent the early history of Kansas.

Internationally known sculptor Bruce Moore designed the ornaments and decorative panels that adorn the exterior of the building. The panel designs include scenes of pioneer and Indian life, eagles and buffalo, all in various native color combinations.

Other decorations include Indian sun designs on the pylons at the main entrance and Indian rug patterns at the north tower entrance.
