When the Normal School burned in 1897, classes and administrative offices were moved to churches and other buildings throughout town. One of those used was the "Methodist-Episcopal" Church. It was so new at the time that it had not even been used for worship yet. (ARC photo).

Almost immediately after George Theodore Smith purchased the brickyard in 1898 he received an enormous contract -- South Hall, which replaced the Normal School building which had been destroyed in 1897. Unfortunately after this, sales became harder. In order to dispose of his bricks Smith used them to build homes (two examples are just east of the Academy Building). The fine new homes sold well, allowing Smith to dispose of most of his bricks by this means. (Photo from ARC)

Prohibition was the dominant political issue in River Falls during the 1880s and 1890s. The above photo comes from a later period, showing the interior of the old Martin Wolff saloon, one of those which was part of the ongoing controversy at the end of the19th century. Today the building is the home of Glass Express, 202 N. Main Street. (ARC photo)
