The Yakima High School at South 7th Avenue and Walnut was built in 1908-1909. It was later renamed the "A.C. Davis High School."

This severe, three-story building resembled an armory or a prison more than a high school, with its crenelated parapet, tower and Gothic details. Of course, many high schools of the period had Gothic detailing, but such rigid crenelation was not typical of the period's secondary schools, but was often reserved for martial or penal building types.

Demolished. Another, more modern high school was built on the same site.
