Newtown High School in Elmhurst and finished in 1921.

This historical landmark, sitting on a natural bulge, dominates the neighborhood with its 170 foot tower.

Newtown High was built during the golden era of American public education when only the latest technology and teaching tools were embraced by government and voters alike with minimal political grandstanding.  This impressive building can only emphasize just how much America’s priorities have truly changed.
