PETTUS – She still is going strong despite her 73 years. The Pettus school was a Great Depression Work Projects Administration enterprise. As the door plaques attest, the stone gymnasium was built between 1930 and 1940. The resemblance to the Alamo is unmistakable, and flourishes in architectural design are common. She is a sturdy contradiction to an age whose society usually considers anything it has known for five minutes as obsolete. As poet Don Marquis notes, There’s a dance in the old dame yet! Toujours gai, toujours gai!
