What Early Building Design Does This Rendition Depict?

The building was formed in 1913, but was deemed to small to operate its basic function.

In 1913 planning commissions were directed to design and subsequently construct this new facility on the outskirts of Fair Oaks' boundaries. 

At the time, things didn't exactly go according to plan, said Fair Oaks historian James Pearce.

Though the building would not be scrapped, revisions and additions to the structure's design would need to be done before using it toward its full potential.

Think you know where and what this building is? Let us know in the comments below.

We'll reveal the answer later this week.

I believe it's the original design for San Juan HS. It was once located what is now Fair Oaks Clubhouse. The San Juan District was formed in 1913, so I could see that the school would be planned at that time. If I recall correctly, it was supposed be in Fair Oaks but was built on land donated by the founder of Citrus Heights. Just a guess.

I looked it up on Wikipedia...BrendanM is correct on the history of San Juan High School. Then I lookrd up it's history and a classmate reunion site...nice old photos of the original school. My guess it was the original elementary school on Winding Way as San Juan School started out as a grammer school then moved to Greenback Lane.

BrendanM is correct, Eve. Congratulations, BrendanM. We'll be showing off a few of those renovation pictures at the beginning of next week.
