Remarks: Round Valley High School was organized in 1921 as a free public tax supported institution after LDS church leaders abolished the system of State Academies. This building was constructed in 1924 and occupied in 1925 after students has been attending classes in the Eager chapel building. The school was demolished in 70s, and a new school was built on the same site.

If you look at the Ponsford 494 and the picture from 1924, you will notice that the basic structure is the same. The front had been altered (entrance widen, but windows remain the same).
