Groundbreaking Friday for New Construction at Heritage University
A little over 14 months ago fire destroyed Petrie Hall on the campus of Heritage University in Toppenish. Now it's time to rebuild and a ground breaking ceremony will be held Friday morning. Petrie Hall, which contained classrooms, computer labs and an art studio will be
replaced, plus two more buildings will be built.
Heritage Communications Officer Bonnie Hughes says "the plan is not just to replace Petrie Hall but to plan for future growth of the campus.The second building will contain the cafeteria, dining room and bookstore and a third building will be dedicated to
information technology." Award winning Seattle architects Olson Kundig will design the new buildings.
The groundbreaking ceremony will take place just off Fort Road on the site where Petrie hall once stood.
