The building, which is located on a seventeen acre site on the shores of Lake Michigan, is planned to accommodate about 1,100 students. It is designed in the Gothic style and is made majestic by a beautiful tower which is lighted with flood lights every night. For miles on both Lake Michigan and the state highways leading into Manitowoc this "tower of learning" looms up as a significant beacon rep- resenting the community's interest in education. The auditorium and gymnasium are separate wings of the building. The auditorium seats 1,200 people and has all modern stage equip- ment. Here the community gathers to witness school productions as well as to participate in civic welfare programs. The gymnasium is the center of all of the ath- letic contests, particularly those of the indoor type. It is being supplemented with a nata- torium that is being built in 1929. This nata- torium is to be a cornnlere iinit hnuimina n Manitowoc County Rural Normal School quate dressing rooms, lockers and lavatories.
