Pieces of Former AHS Building Could Rise From The Ashes

ABERDEEN, Wash. – Pieces of Aberdeen’s former High School Building could end up in an art project in downtown Aberdeen.

The Aberdeen City Council last night adopted a report suggestion a process that would take peices salvaged from the burnt building, and use them in a new peice that would be designed by a winning artist.

Art Commission member Tom Quigg said they want to create the memorial to commerorate the Weatherwax family, and the contributions they have made to the city over the years.

The JM Weatherwax Building, named in honor of John Weatherwax an early homesteader along the Wishkah River, burned January of 2002.
