Series: Hinsdale 150 | Story 31

Voters approved a $3.9 million bond issue in December 1973 to build a new three-story junior high next to the Garfield School, with the first students moving into the Hinsdale Junior High School in March 1976. Forty-three years later, a successful $53 million referendum led to the construction of the new Hinsdale Middle School, which opened to students in January 2019. (Jim Slonoff photos)
