School no longer in operation Building no longer exists
This school was first built about 1885. In November 1909 the Board voted to tear down the original building and build a warehouse on the west side of the School Board offices at 8th and Louisiana streets with the recovered lumber and other materials. The newer Fort Steele building was destroyed by fire in April 1915. The U.M. Rose School was built on the same site later that same year as a replacement.
