If you went to Central High, the venerable old school at 701 S. Warren St., you may want to rekindle teenage memories with a tour of the landmark from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday March 13. The tour, hosted by the Preservation Association of CNY, will be conducted by Sehl Burns. Participants will meet in the front steps of the main entrance.
Designed in 1899 by architect Archimedes Russell, the Central High building was erected in 1903 at a cost of $428,076. The high school, which accommodated 1,500 students, closed in 1975.
Sunday’s tour costs $15, or $10 for PACNY members; 424-1297; pacny.net .
