Memories of Granite High School

I remember walking to school with friends and stopping by mill creek on the way home to watch the Muskrats and other wildlife. I still remember my hair being frozen by the time I got home in the winter after swimming in the pool at the end of the day, and that’s even a good memory because I was so grateful to have the amenities of Granite High so close to my home.

Shelly and I along with many of our neighbors love spending time at the track & field as well as on the tennis courts, however I think our dogs liked the track even more. We have met so many of our neighbors at the campus that we would have never met otherwise and we are very grateful for the friendships we have as a result of that.

Benson is always the fastest Yorkie on the track and he loves being there.

Granite High opened in 1907 and after a lot of debate it was closed by the Granite School District in June 2009.

Many of us in South Salt Lake tried to find a way to make the 27-acre campus a community center and a Park but some were unwilling to invest in their own Community. I read this comment on the Salt Lake Tribune Opinion web site “The community center was the best possible use for it. It was defeated by scare tactics.”

I hope we can find a way to preserve this open space in our community, I am hoping to get new ideas from you, so please post your comments and lets see what we can do.

    I had a lot of good memories there. I was hoping my own kids would get to go there. Sad to see it go.
