Project Rationale


Maintenance and renovation costs at Hibbing High School are greater than most public schools because of the high-quality materials used in construction. Plaster molding forming the walls and ceiling areas are ornate and detailed. Light fixtures are all custom designed. Historic building details such as the stained-glass exit signs must be maintained to their original historic integrity.

Hibbing High School has always been more than an educational facility serving our community, region and state. The construction details found particularly in the auditorium area make the building like no other educational facility. This one-of-a-kind building, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is worth the preservation efforts put forth for decades by our community. We are always working in the nearly 100-year-old facility to maintain the excellent educational opportunities for students while maintaining the value of the building, and the economic impact it provides to our region.

Our auditorium serves local students and our community and region with many public events including theatrical and choral performances, community dance recitals, and community education sponsored events, including the partial listing presented below:
