Bramwell High School - History

The Orignal BHS ( 1896 - 1933 )

From Martha Jane Becker's Book " Bramwell, The Diary of a Millionaire Coal Town", the records show that high school work was done in Bramwell as far back as 1901. This was carried on an irregular basis until 1907. In 1910 - 1911 the full-year course was added. Fifty pupils were enrolled in the Bramwell High School in 1912. Four graduates; Glenna Pack, Isabell Toy, Lucile Rowan and Fannie Vincent were the first to graduated from Bramwell High School.

In 1933 when the county system went into effect , the smaller schools in the area were abolished and consolidated into the Bramwell Schools.

On the night of December 13, 1933, a fire of undetermined orgin broke out in Bramwell High School. The building was burned practically to the ground. The building was replaced in 1934 with the building that remains today.
