Mifflin's Multi-Million Dollar Capital Project Begins

When completed, there's going to be a new gym and countless interior improvements that will enhance learning for the students and provide staff with a more pleasant workplace environment. After two years and millions of dollars, the Mifflin School will be reborn. These shots are from the exterior of the building and depict debris from where the library used to stand in addition to the administrative "offices" of the project overseers, some of the heavy equipment getting the job done, and a few other "perspective" photos. When cleared away, a new gym will rise. The library is being relocated to more spacious and high tech quarters in the part of the building that fronts Conrad Street, over the main entrance.

Jeff, Great pictures of the construction work on Mifflin. I am the guy who went to Mifflin in the early/mid 1960s and live in Maryland now. I have fond memories of Mifflin and my friends. Please keep posting new pictures.
Thanks!
