To celebrate the 125th anniversary of Lewis-Clark State College, the LCSC Center for Arts and History opened a historical exhibit DATE called “Town and Gown.”
The exhibit vividly shows the history from which LCSC and its surrounding community developed.
The displays include timelines for the school, and countless photos, including LCSC’s first sports teams, including football, swimming and even cheer. The exhibit also shows artifacts such as one of the school’s first yearbooks.
One display tells the story of when the school building burned in 1917, but continued to educate students. Many years later in 1951 ,the school closed down due to the war and lack of funds. The school was closed for three years, until it was reopened under the name of Lewis-Clark Normal School.
This exhibit is one of a kind, and a must-see for residents of the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley. “Town and Gown” will be at the Center for Arts and History until Oct. 27. The center is at 415 Main Street in Lewiston, open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Mon – Sat. Admission is free.
