The Woodruff School

BYC Normal School students used the nearby Woodruff School, a local public school, as a normal training center for the prospective school teachers. This building, constructed in 1892, was located on First South and First West on the opposite corner from BYC’s East Building. It was used as an elementary school until 1939, when a new Woodruff School opened on Second West. The building was then owned by Utah State University for several years and served many purposes, including as a men’s dormitory for the National Youth Administration (NYA) federal program.
