This cool diagram of the Eatonville campus was drawn by Fred Chamberlin for Superintendent B. W. Lyon back around 1915. There are a number amenities you won’t find today, like a barn, cow pen, pig pen, garden, orchard and poultry plant. (Eatonville had an outstanding Ag department.)

In July 1916, the Dispatch ran the school budget for the coming year. This state-of-the-art school had an annual budget ($21,873)  equaling less than one teacher’s salary today.

$     420 — Expense of of General Control
$14,535 — Expense of Instruction
$  2,243 — Expense of operating School plant
$  1,965 — Expense for maintenance
$  1,160 — Expense for auxiliary agencies
$    800 — Payment of outstanding warrants and warrant interest
$    500 — Equipment for new new building and grounds
$    250 — Equipment for old buildings and grounds.
